Intro to Playwriting

Fall 2021

Taught By: Angela Hanks

Section: A

CRN: 1911

Credits: 4

This playwriting course employs a series of exercises to develop characters, settings, scenes, plot, and eventually a one-act play. Students read and discuss their plays in class during the writing and revising process; they also analyze a variety of dramatic texts and other sources to discover individual voice and understand narrative structure. Response papers on a theatrical production and a play reading in the city supplement this work. This course is one of the required foundational practice courses for Theater majors and minors. For this course, the students need only a laptop with a working camera or an external webcam (no preference) and a reliable high-speed internet connection.
