Works in Progress: Playwriting (Virtual)

Thursday, January 26, 2023, 6:30 pm
Virtual Event on Zoom | 6:30 Eastern Time
$50 General, $45 Folger Members/Subscribers

What does it mean to be an outsider? How does it feel to be alienated from everything and everyone around you? How can Shakespeare help us put our own experiences on stage?   In this workshop, playwright Caleen Sinnette Jennings guides you in creating your own short scene or monologue by exploring these questions.

This workshop is offered online over Zoom on Thursday, January 26 at 6:30pm (ET). For the in-person session, click here.

Workshops are open to all: from those who've never written a play, to those who have, and want new techniques. Recommended for adults and mature teenagers (16+).
