PLAYWRITING

This 10-week workshop is designed to help new and experienced writers start or develop new plays into scripts that are ready to be put on stage. Each 4-hour session includes: a warm-up writing exercise, reading and discussion of works in progress, reading assignments from dramatic literature to illustrate and inspire writers with their work, and a closing exercise to focus on the next week’s work. The workshop culminates in readings of the works in progress at East West Players’ David Henry Hwang Theater.

Instructor: DORIS BAIZLEY
September 12, 2009 – November 21, 2009
Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm
Staged Readings: December 8 – 20, 2009
Maryknoll Japanese Catholic Center
222 S. Hewitt St., Los Angeles, CA  90012
Fee: $400 (ACTS members $375)

Doris Baizley’s recent documentary and community-based plays include: ONE DAY/SARAH HOUSE, winner of a 2009 Santa Barbara Independent Award, PEACE CRIMES: THE MINNESOTA 8 vs. THE WAR, produced by The History Theatre and the U. of Minnesota in 2008, and SEXSTING, co-written with defense attorney Susan Raffanti, winner of the Guthrie Theatre/Playwrights Center Two-Headed Challenge Grant, produced at the Salt Lake Acting Company in 2007. She is a founding member of LA Theatre Works and was resident dramaturg for the Mark Taper Forum’s Other Voices Programs for theatre artists with disabilities. Her plays MRS. CALIFORNIA, SHILOH RULES, and A CHRISTMAS CAROL have been produced in many U.S. regional theaters including the Mark Taper Forum, the Alabama Shakespeare Festival and ACT Seattle.  She is currently working on a play about Sister Kenny and the legacy of polio for the History Theatre in St. Paul MN. 

PLAY-CRAFTING THROUGH CREATIVE TENSION

Through freewrites, guided exercises and revision strategies, this workshop will guide writers to complete the first act or first draft of a full length play.  One of the approaches of this workshop is to develop writing fluency by exploring the creative tension between creation and revision.  By active engagement in this practice, writers will discover the center of the play as they deepen and complicate their work.  Topics to cover include: narrative pressure, structure, characterization, and subtext.  Additional work includes reading and attending plays. All participants should be willing to start a project from scratch.  The workshop culminates in readings of the works in progress at East West Players’ David Henry Hwang Theater.
