Part 2 of the Workshop: Write a Ten-Minute Play will refine the plays written in Part 1 and get them ready for performance. It will also cover how a theatrical production works and the next steps to get your newly-written play performed and/or published. The final class will be a staged reading of the plays as part of the Celebration Lifelong Lecture Series. Class size is limited to 6.
