Contemporary Classics with Alex Lin

Award-winning playwright Alex Lin shares critical approaches to modernizing classical texts into contemporary stories for women, LGBTQIA+, and POC voices.


Building Strong Play Structures
with Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin
September (Date & Time TBD)

In this playwriting class, students will examine play structures that align with and diverge from traditional Aristotelian arcs, looking at varied examples of how form and content can be in conversation with each other with ideas from Sarah Ruhl, Suzan-Lori Parks, and Paula Vogel. Together we'll complete writing exercises, build outlines, and dream up plays that have distinctive forms.
