Instructor: Will Dunne

Want to see how "Scene Shop" Play Development works?  This special three-session sampler series lets you experience our longest-running playwriting workshop without having to commit to full-quarter enrollment and cost. Come on in and give it a try.

Led by Resident Playwright Will Dunne, author of The Dramatic Writer's Companion, you'll gain character, scene, and story tools to help you write and revise your script, hear professional actors read the work you bring from home, and receive constructive group feedback in a supportive setting. And if you need to miss a session, you can make it up in the other Scene Shop Sampler that week.

Will Dunne's plays have been presented worldwide in three languages and earned numerous honors, including three selections by the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center for the U.S. National Playwrights Conference, a Charles MacArthur Fellowship awarded by the O'Neill for outstanding comedy, four Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Awards, two DramaLogue Playwriting Awards, and a Best-of-Year mention from the San Francisco Examiner. He also has been nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Play and twice been named a finalist for the Heideman Award at the  Actors Theatre of Louisville.

His books include THE DRAMATIC WRITER'S COMPANION, THE ARCHITECTURE OF STORY, and CHARACTER, SCENE AND STORY all published internationally by the University of Chicago Press.

The Early Bird Registration Discount is not applicable for this course. Network Discounts still apply.

Classes will be held via Zoom. Instructors will send out Zoom invites one day before class begins. We encourage students to set up a Zoom account for themselves before class if they have not already to ensure when class begins you are able to jump straight into the art!
