Perspectives On Playwriting

We're thrilled to invite you to join us this summer for Perspectives On Playwriting. In the interest of deepening our audience's engagement with new plays, we want to connect you — our most adventurous theater lovers — with some of our favorite theater makers. Now in its fifth year, this summer course introduces students to the processes and purposes of playwriting, as told by the playwrights themselves.

Whether you’re a longtime theatergoer or completely new to the world of the stage, you can participate in Perspectives On Playwriting in a number of ways — no previous playwriting experience required.


10-Week Core Workshop

Classes will begin May 11 and run through the summer, concluding on July 27. All meetings will take place at Playwrights Horizons on Monday evenings from 6–9 PM, with the exception of the June 11 Master Class, which will take place on a Thursday. Ashley Chang, the Dramaturg at Playwrights, will kick off each session with a guided look at dramatic history and theatrical form.

May 11 and 18
June 1, 11*, 15, 22, and 29*

*Indicates a Master Class. Participation in the Core Workshop includes all three Master Classes, plus an exclusive breakout conversation with these teachers following their formal sessions.

TUITION

POP Talks

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.
