PAST 310 Playwriting II for Writing for Theater and Media

Having developed a strong understanding of Aristotelian narrative and the short play form from Playwriting I, the student will now tackle the full-length play and explore alternative structures. Along with shorter, experimental pieces written in response to unconventional texts, the student's work will culminate in the first draft of a full-length play (60-100 pages). Students will continue to develop dramaturgy skills in this workshop-based course by helping each other mold and shape these brand-new, original full-length works. Works from this course, Screenwriting II, or Writing the TV Drama may be submitted to the BA directors for possible selection as a Senior Directing Showcase project.
