How to Begin (and Begin Again): One of the primary challenges of starting a new play is allowing yourself to begin from a place of not knowing – a terrifying state to be in, but the frame of mind from which the most interesting and intimate work derives. In this class, we will identify structural elements and procedural choices, allowing writers to observe – and disrupt – their habitual patterns and assumptions. We will explore ways to stay off balance, and tactics for engaging with new work in a manner that compels us to move into unknown structural, thematic and stylistic territory. The class is open to writers at all levels.
Greg Moss wrote Orange, Hat & Grace which was produced as part of the 2009/2010 Soho Rep. season.
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 recieved 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 go live the week of WRITE WITH US at www.sohorep.org
All workshops are free.
