Join playwright Donna Abela (Jump for Jordan) for her two-day Advanced Playwriting Workshop that explores the three things Donna believes to be essential in plays:

logical causality – a plausible world, and cause and effect plotting
associative causality – connective tissue that is associative, imagistic, language-driven, and unconsciously predicated
what is necessitated – writing what the play calls for, regardless of logic; a willingness to take intuited risk and surprise yourself.

The workshop will cover some generative writing exercises, and then explore these three areas. Participants should come with a work or play in progress, or a concept they want to explore.

Capacity is strictly limited. Book now.
