The word “wright” means “to build” or “one who builds”; a playwright is “one who builds plays”. In this 90 minute workshop, we will explore the key building blocks that go into the successful construction of a play: structure and character. We will explore how some of the best playwrights use structure and character to their advantage, as well as tips, tricks, and exercises to get you started on wrighting your own play!
