SELECTIONS FROM THEATRE ARTISTS OF COLOR WRITING WORKSHOP

Playwrights & directors TBA

Wednesday, April 11, 7pm

We hosted a gathering of Theatre Artists of Color in June of 2017. The desire to tell stories authentically came up multiple times throughout the gathering. So we organized a writing workshop with Utah's most produced playwright, Julie Jensen, to be held in November and December of 2017. Julie will teach the basics of the craft; the writers will write; we'll craft select pieces into an evening of short works.


Free but required tickets are available at planbtheatre.org/scriptinhandseries (once capacity is reached a wait list option is available - if the wait list doesn't activate that means the wait list is also at capacity).

Forty-two plays have received free staged readings since the launch of the series in 2004. Now a natural extension of The Lab (our monthly meeting-and-sharing of the work of 13 local playwrights), the Series allows us to further explore plays under consideration for full production and test them in front of an audience.
