Annie Baker leads a playwriting workshop…
Annie Baker adapted – and designed the costumes for – Soho Rep.’s Uncle Vanya in 2012.
You’re invited to become a creator and collaborator at our home on Walker Street during WRITE WITH US, a festival of free workshops with writers who have received productions at Soho Rep. Each playwright will share their unique creative process with you, and beginners are welcome.
Classes are open to 60 participants. If sold out, a digital waitlist will open at www.sohorep.org the week of WRITE WITH US.
All workshops are free.
