Perspectives On Playwriting
Whether you’re a budding playwright or a curious theatergoer, you can participate in Perspectives On Playwriting in a number of ways — no previous writing experience required.
Our 10-session summer course, the Core Workshop, began in 2016 and offers an immersive experience, granting close-up access to playwrights and their writing processes. Previous teachers include Jeff Augustin, Jaclyn Backhaus, Adam Bock, Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas, Lisa D’Amour, Adam Greenfield, The Debate Society, Kirsten Childs, Erin Courtney, Madeleine George, Amy Herzog, Lucas Hnath, Sam Hunter, Craig Lucas, Kirk Lynn, Robert O’Hara, A. Rey Pamatmat, Max Posner, Heather Raffo, Sarah Ruhl, and Anne Washburn.
Classes have historically begun in mid-May and run through the summer, concluding in late July.
We anticipate announcing our 2020 Core Workshop schedule and line-up early next year.
Master Classes offer single sessions with some of the most dynamic artists working in the American theater today. Previous teachers include Lisa D’Amour, The Debate Society, Halley Feiffer, Lucas Hnath, Michael R. Jackson, The Mad Ones, Robert O’Hara, Heather Raffo, Clint Ramos, Sarah Ruhl, and Anne Washburn.
We anticipate announcing our 2020 Master Class schedule and line-up early next year.
Following select performances, we invite you to join us in the lobby for POP Talks. Unlike our traditional Post-Performance Discussions, POP Talks create an informal space for our audience to talk to one another about the play they just experienced together. These conversations are hosted by fellow audience members who are alumni of the POP Core Workshop.
