PLAYWRITING: Process & Projects with Bill Burford

Wednesdays, October 16–November 20 from 6–9pm

PLAYWRITING: PROCESS & PROJECTS is a six-week workshop designed to unleash the playwright’s inner imaginings, explore how stories emerge, and prepare for production. Producer/director Bill Burford helps writers, actors, and other artists foster each other’s work through free-drafting, reading each participant’s new pages together, and mutually supportive feedback.

Artists are encouraged to work on any kind of character-based piece for stage: plays, operas, and new forms, as well as dance, musical, puppet, or physical theater. With the performative medium left to the writer, each workshop’s focus develops with the scripts themselves, addressing a variety of concepts, processes, and techniques as needed.

The workshop concludes with a reflection on the preceding weeks’ work, and a final reading where the writers can hear excerpts from their latest re-write with an invited audience.
