About the Event

This FREE nine-session workshop series is open to all seniors (55+), regardless of prior experience. Whether you’re an experienced playwright or a curious beginner, this workshop will provide a supportive environment for honing your skills, exploring new ideas, and creating compelling narratives for the theater.

Registration for the entire workshop series and reading is required. Join us as we embark on this creative journey together!

This workshop series is led by the seasoned playwright Janice Liddell, PhD, a retired English professor who discovered her passion for playwriting later in life.

The 4 week course on the basics of playwriting for seniors will cover such aspects of the art as developing the story; structuring the play; developing character(s); focusing on dialogue; imagining the set. Over the four  weeks we will also watch a recording of at least one play; read and analyze the scripts of several plays (one-acts and more); as well as write our own one- or two-act play.

To culminate the four-week session, we will host a community gathering  where each of the playwrights will enjoy a staged reading of his or her play.

ArtsXchange is excited to create an opportunity for seasoned writers to delve into the art of playwriting.
