Stories for Spaces, 1st Ed
Want to write some plays and drink Manhattans with me?
I will be working with the always delightful Jessy Lauren Smith to co-teach a playwriting class at The Drinkingbird! This is the first of what will surely be many courses to be offered by members of Living Room Playmakers, which will be based upon our model of site-inspired playwriting.
What does that mean? Basically, we find a cool location—in this case, Drinkingbird—and investigate it as a source of inspiration. Everything from the lighting to the patrons to the beers on tap can become ideas that spark a story you want to tell.
We’ll go over some playwriting basics, do a few writing exercises, and then create and workshop the beginnings of some new short plays.
Also, did I mention this bar makes a mean cocktail? Oh, and there’s a fireplace.
We’re partnering with Chicago-based Dabble to present this 3-hour class just for you on March 21, 2015 at 2:30pm.
