Online Class: Comedy Writing for the Stage

at Primary Stages ESPA -

A solid grasp of the mechanics of comedy writing for the stage is a powerful tool in the hand of any playwright.

This class might be for you if you are: A playwright in any stage of your...

Dialogue Writing Level 1 Two Day Intensive

at Gotham Writers' Workshop -

As Rhett tells Scarlett in the movie Gone With the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” (In the book version, there’s no “frankly.”) Either way it’s a good line, and you should give a damn about your dialogue. Dialogue is crucial to any kind of story—fiction, nonfiction, any kind of script. Bad dialogue can sink it like a...

Playwriting Intensive I: Structure

at The Barrow Group Acting School -

The word playwright (like boatwright or cartwright) means “maker” of plays, not writer of plays. Playwrights are craftspeople and as reliant on structure as a carpenter or mason. In this class, we begin with an idea that resonates and build from there. Taking cues dating back to Aristotle, we will explore basic structure as we put pencil to paper....

Stand-Up Comedy Writing Level 1: 10 Week Workshop

at Gotham Writers' Workshop -

Comics say it’s the greatest high. You step into the light, take a swig of water, pick up the mic, then reduce a crowd of people to a mass of helpless laughter. Sure, the risks are great—silence, heckling, humiliation—but on a good night a stand-up feels richer than Seinfeld and Rock combined. You “kill” or “die” depending on your material....
