THTR 230 Playwriting


3 cr.

Course Description

Playwriting is a participatory, workshop style class. Students will become equipped with the basic literary and dramatic skills to write a 10 minute play. The 10 minute play is a hot commodity for playwrights, and is an easy way to have their work seen, read by peers, and most importantly, brought to the stage. Students will work toward having a staged reading of their final piece by the end of the semester, as well as prepare their plays to be sent to competitions and festivals.


This course satisfies the Aesthetics Perspective of the GUR and the Arts & Sciences writing intensive requirement.
