ENGL 303 Playwriting (limited enrollment)
Instructor: Roof, Judith
“Right from the jump, ask yourself: “Why does this thing I’m writing have to be a play?” The words “why,” “have” and “play” are key. If you don’t have an answer then get out of town. No joke. The last thing American theatre needs is another lame play.”
- Suzan-Lori Parks
In this course you will write, workshop, rewrite, stage, rewrite, and perform a one-act play. You will also read, parse, analyze, and work through existing play texts.
