| what's it all about? |
This weekly workshop is a fun a fun and friendly opportunity to practice cold reading, and become a better writer. Be a writer, be an actor, or be both. We workshop 2 scripts per week, roughly 25 pages of each. Actors receive their scripts when they arrive, writers run through the pages once with their actors, and then they perform it for the other cast. Then everyone in the room is welcome to give the writer feedback on the development of their script.
