Island Theatre presents a ten-minute playwriting course led by professional playwright and teacher Kristina Sutherland Rowell. This two-session, 8-hour course is for new and seasoned playwrights alike. Students will learn and experiment with the core fundamentals of playwriting while focusing on the ten-minute play format. You’ll discuss and debate what makes a “good” ten-minute play. And through a series of timed exercises and group games, you’ll create characters, write dialogue, and share your work out loud in a fast-paced, inclusive, safe, and fun environment. Class size is limited to 15 so that each student receives personal attention.
This course is perfect for anyone who wants to submit a play for Island Theatre’s 2024 Ten-Minute Play Festival, learn the fundamentals of playwriting, or brush up their playwriting skills.
