Playwriting Intensive: Raising Social Consciousness
In this class, participants will work together to write an original play specifically aimed at raising social consciousness and awareness. Through various writing exercises and discussions, students’ voices will be heard on a unique platform, harnessed through the power of art. Subjects explored will include: Self confidence, peer pressures, political agendas, cyber bullying, social pressures, racial tensions and academic expectations. The final script will be read as part of NHTP's Intelligent Theatre Playreading Festival in late March.
Fittingly, the class begins on Marthin Luther King Day and ends on President's Day!
For ages 12-17. Limited to 12 participants.
No previous playwriting experience is necessary.
Mondays, 5:00-6:30 pm
