The 3rd Annual Short Short Playwrighting Project
The Muse, Norfolk Little Theatre, and Norfolk Playwright Collective Present the 3rd Annual Short-Short Playwriting Project.
A play goes through many phases before it hits the page and then the stage. This project will help guide 6 aspiring playwrights through the very early processes of developing a play. The playwrights selected will take an idea for a play and participate in a virtual six session playwriting workshop to learn the basics of playwriting and develop a short-short play script. When the script is complete, a director will be assigned to work with the writer to cast the play and rehearse for a staged reading with scripts in hand of all plays at The Little Theater Norfolk.
All plays written in this workshop will be one-acts of 10 – 15 minutes with casts of no more than 4 and one set. The workshop will be taught by Jean Klein, an internationally produced playwright, playwriting faculty member in the Maslow MA and MFA in Creative Writing Program at Wilkes University, and owner of a dramatic publishing company, HaveScripts/Blue Moon Plays, LLC.
