Two-Week Playwriting Class in Portland, Maine

Portland, Maine!

Ever wanted to learn how to write a play? Or do you have a half-finished draft gathering dust in a drawer? Come to my two-week class at Acorn starting in April!

Tuesdays, April 25 and May 2, 6:30-9:30pm. Only $65!

A play can entertain, puzzle, frustrate, provoke, or confirm or challenge a worldview. This workshop will supplement the basic elements of playwriting such as character, setting, and plot, with discussions and exercises around image and spectacle, form and structure, space, language, rhythm, and the importance of questions. This workshop will give you tools to build the engine of your play while nurturing the igniting spark. Suitable for beginners and experienced playwrights alike, the workshop will be a mix of lecture, discussion, in-class writing exercises, and hearing your work read aloud.

MAY 39th reading in East Hampton

East Hampton!

This Saturday, March 25, at 6:30pm, the amazing J.Stephen Brantley and Chloe Dirksen will perform in a reading of my play "MAY 39th" at Malia Mills pop-up gallery, 55 Main Street. Directed by Nick Gregory.

I wrote this play 11 years ago, and it remains my most-produced piece, with six productions and several readings. It's set 1,000 years in the future, the morning after a first date.

A jacked-up homage to Terrence McNally's "Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune."
