Ready to work with professional actors to bring your script to life? Want to get your script produced, get an agent, or apply for an MFA program? In this intensive forum, you will polish and complete a full-length play. The course will combine peer workshops with lectures, writing exercises, and in-depth analysis of several classic plays. The last half of the course offers each writer the opportunity to workshop their script with professional actors. You will be in the company of other serious writers and an experienced instructor dedicated to giving comprehensive and insightful feedback. Students will receive full written coverage by the instructor on their completed scripts.

At the end of the class, writers will participate in a staged reading of a scene from their completed script. The reading will use professional actors and will be performed in front of a live audience. Writers are welcome to invite friends and family to the event. Only students who have taken previous playwriting workshops at GrubStreet or elsewhere should apply. Space is limited to 6 students in order to foster a closer, more intense, and more rigorous learning experience.

Students hoping to apply for Master Playwriting should have at least one Act or thirty pages of a play completed. The deadline to apply for this class is 5:00pm on December 10th. Applicants can expect be notified of our decisions by December 17th.
