Actors Rep is hosting a fun, two-part playwriting workshop.
Originally created by a group of playwrights in the 1980s and popularised by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Paula Vogel, the ‘Play Bake-Off’ exercise is for playwrights of all levels who want a fun opportunity to write a new play just for the joy of doing it.
Participants will meet twice. The first time to talk about plays and playwriting, do a short writing exercise, and to be given a short list of ‘ingredients’ for a new play- which will be written before the next meeting.
At the second workshop participants will share their work, read scenes aloud, enjoy the work, and share experiences with the process.
Playwright, actor and director Erik Abbott will facilitate the Bake-Off.
