DRAM 210 - Introduction to Playwriting

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
This course emphasizes the student’s work through the craft of playwriting, theatrical storytelling and narrative. Reading of plays, discussion, writing and reading aloud of material with group feedback constitute the major portion of this course. Generative writing exercises are done in class or suggested for outside class time. The course ends with informal readings of students’ final plays. A communal workshop atmosphere prevails so that students engage in a collaborative approach to problem solving, through rewriting, which dramatic writing requires. The collaboration process between directors, actors and designers is also discussed. 

Prerequisite(s): DRAM 102 .

One 3-hour period.
