Setting as a Character
September 17, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In partnership with the DC Public Libraries (DCPL), Mosaic will host a series of FREE workshops teaching the basics of playwriting taught by playwright Gethsemane Herron-Coward and actor/writer James J. Johnson. Over three sessions, writers will build upon the neighborhood oral history project already begun by the DCPL, and focus on how to create plays using interviews and oral recordings. A DCPL representative will spend approximately 10 minutes of each workshop familiarizing participants with DCPL’s collection of oral recordings. By the end of the series, participants will have started (if not completed) a draft of their own play based on historical recordings. Week 3: Setting as a Character- Continuing the themes from weeks 1 and 2, this class will begin with an analysis of the play assigned in week 1. Participants will then respond to writing prompts, create dialogue between characters, locate the inciting incident in a setting, and adapt previous text work. The workshop will conclude with feedback of the participants’ plays in progress!
