If you aspire to be a produced playwright, the ten-minute play could be your ticket to success. In this highly interactive course, we’ll read aloud and analyze for technique some of the best ten-minute comedies and dramas of the past decade. Then, you’ll apply those techniques to your own writing. Your work will be read aloud and critiqued in class, and you’ll be asked to revise/polish/perfect throughout the course. The goal is for you to finish the course with a competition-worthy, ten-minute play. Please bring A More Perfect Ten: Writing and Producing The Ten-Minute Play (first edition) by Gary Garrisonto the first class.
