ScriptWorks offers the flexibility of online learning for this five-week intensive geared toward re-animating your plays in progress, locating their core and seeing them anew. If theater is, as we all know, an event in space and a way of seeing, then revising work for live performance is about understanding the true nature of the event and how the stage is a canvas for ordinary and extraordinary acts of disruption and simultaneous healing. This workshop is conducted via email with weekly assignments.
