Lucas Hnath has written plays about The Clintons, Isaac Newton, and Walt Disney. He will lead a workshop looking at how to write a play about a famous person (and really how to write a play about yourself.)
Lucas Hnath wrote the play A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney which featured in the 2013 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 open up on www.sohorep.org the week fo WRITE WITH US.
All workshops are free.
