Have you ever had an idea that you thought would make a great play but didn't know how to begin?
Explore a series of writing exercises with Toronto playwright and actor Julie Tepperman that will help spark your imagination and give you strategies for generating new material - both dialogue and monologue. In order to delve deeper into your work and learn what makes something ‘playable’, Julie will facilitate on-your-feet improvisations, just like an actor working with new material in a workshop. There will be an emphasis on character development, relationships, how to keep the action driving forward and ways to keep the stakes high.

No previous playwriting experience necessary.
