    Doin’ it for the Culture: The Playwright as Cultural Worker & (Post-) Apocalyptic Anthropologist with Erika Dickerson-Despenza

    640 433 Play Penn

    What do we do while standing at the edge of ongoing apocalypses? We make new futures possible by writing the world(s) to come.

    In this workshop, participants use anthropological frameworks, exercise principles of cultural work and examine an array of speculative literary and visual texts in order to generate speculative dramatic scenes that will culminate in an original, interdisciplinary short work. Participants will also develop a community-centered initiative that would lead, accompany and/or follow the performance. By practicing the future together, participants will be empowered to “respect their rage and their power” as liberation workers in the collective struggle for justice.

    Online: October 30, November 7, November 14, November 21: 7p – 9p E.S.T. / 5p – 7p P.S.T.

    Online via Zoom.

    Enrolled students will be contacted prior to the first session with required reading and preliminary assignments.

    Writing From The Deep with Lisa Kenner Grissom

    640 433 Play Penn

    Harness personal experience in your dramatic writing.

    We all have significant personal experiences that define, change or transform us—some are joyful, others painful. People often say, write what you know. But how? In this workshop, we will explore techniques to tap into your personal history in a safe way in order to enrich your characters with deep emotional resonance and subtext. Both in-class and at-home writing exercises will help you ask meaningful questions of yourself and your characters, construct compelling pieces from your own source materials, and make your story come alive with an authentic voice. This four-week online workshop is for writers who want to draw upon their personal histories to use emotions, memories and experiences to deepen the themes, characters and stories in their dramatic work.

    Tuesdays (online): October 29, November 5, November 12, November 19: 7 pm – 9 pm E.S.T. / 5 pm – 7 pm P.S.T.

    Playwriting for Playgoers with John Yearley

    640 433 Play Penn

    After taking this class you will never look at a play the same way again.

    Any theatregoer can tell you about a play they saw that they’ll never forget. But how much do even lifelong theatregoers know about the art of playwriting itself? Playwriting for Playgoers will mix the educational and the experiential so that students will really understand the practice and experience of playwriting. First, we will read and discuss a great play, breaking down how and why it works so well. Then we will do exercises to explore how you write for plays, how you write in the voice of other characters and create conflicts that reveal their deepest truths.

    21-Hour Summer Playtime Intensive with L M Feldman

    640 433 Play Penn

    Write, play, and discover with PlayPenn instructor L M Feldman in this immersive summer intensive.

    We’ll spend each session in the spark and buzz that comes from writing a lot in a short period of time among a community of other writers who are doing it with you. Each time we meet, we’ll have a prompt or two to run with, a hefty chunk of time to write, and then time at the end for half of the class to share their writing aloud and hear immediate responses on what’s landing, what’s exciting, what we’re hungry for more of. Prompts will be open-ended enough to use however is most useful to you — so feel free to come with a play in mind that you’ve been meaning to write, a half-finished play you’re craving to finish drafting, or utterly fresh and open to just saying a radical yes to whatever ideas come up from each prompt, and then writing to see where they take you!

    July 29, July 31, August 2, August 5: 5:30pm-9:30pm

    August 12: 5:30pm-10:30pm

    Rehearsal Room at the Drake Theatre 

    L M Feldman is a queer, feminist playwright (and circus artist) who pens plays that are wildly theatrical but deeply intimate. Formally ambitious plays that move, take up space. Plays that are questing, wrestling, asking. Plays without answers. Plays about women and queers, plays about outsiders and searchers. Plays grappling with voice and agency, opportunity and access, history and its wake. Plays about the human connection. Plays that seek to be a greater, communal, rare theatrical event in which something transcendent transpires – for those both onstage & off. Her plays include THRIVE, OR WHAT YOU WILL (Page 73 Residency, New Georges Audrey Residency); ANOTHER KIND OF SILENCE (Magic Theatre Virgin Play Festival, PlayPenn Conference, Playwrights Realm Fellowship, FEWW Prize Honorable Mention); AMANUENSIS (Georgetown University); A PEOPLE (Orbiter 3, Jewish Plays Project); THE EGG-LAYERS (Jane Chambers Honorable Mention, New Georges/Barnard College commission); GRACE, OR THE ART OF CLIMBING (Denver Center, Art House Productions, Nice People Theatre, ATCA/Steinberg New Play Award Nomination, Barrymore Nomination); ensemble-devised works, including GUMSHOE (New Paradise Labs + Free Library of Philadelphia + Rosenbach Museum), WAR OF THE WORLDS: PHILADELPHIA (Swim Pony + Drexel University), AND IF YOU LOSE YOUR WAY, OR A FOOD ODYSSEY (The Invisible Dog, New York Innovative Theatre Award Nomination), and others; and a baker’s dozen of short plays. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, L is also a New Georges Affiliated Artist, a devised-work collaborator, a teacher of playwriting (Bryn Mawr College, Lantern Theatre/Jefferson Medical School, PlayPenn), and a freelance dramaturg.

    Creating Character with Sheri Wilner

    640 433 Play Penn

    Whether you’re revising a play, or beginning a new one, or have a character but no story, the course’s exercises and discussions will apply to you.

    Have your plays ever received one or more of these critiques: “I want to know more about your main character; ” “I don’t understand your protagonist’s objective;” “She’s so passive, what does she want?” or “We need more backstory”? If so, this weekend-long intensive is designed to help you avert such criticism by creating lucid yet complicated three-dimensional characters. Together we’ll work on multiple in-class and at-home writing exercises that help us develop a deep understanding of our character’s wants and needs, psychology and back stories and then how to transmit that understanding to audiences through action and dialogue rather than exposition. Wilner’s class will deepen your knowledge of your current characters and provide tools to create vivid, distinct, three-dimensional characters in your future work.

    Saturday and Sunday, August 10 and 11, 1-5pm
