Do you have a story you’d like to tell?
It could be a story that you made up, or a story you heard somewhere else. It can be about real events, or a classic story from the past.
You may not think you are a writer – or you may be an incredible writer. Either way, the skills it takes to create a compelling story and turn it into a play – are different.
And can all be learned at any age!
My name is Isabel Smyth and I am the Artistic Director at Teatro Luna Azul. I’ve been writing and adapting plays for almost 40 years, and I have some very useful techniques that I can share with you, to bring your story to life, and write it into a play.
And this can be done with relative ease in a reasonable amount of time.
And it can be done online – so you never have to leave your home. You can be in any city, town or country to participate, on your own time.
Here’s the plan:
We start in the beginning of September and work on your story for a few weeks. You bring your idea to the table (or the computer) and we will work that story out till you have something that can be developed. I will bring suggestions and exercises for you to do with your story idea, to help you flesh it out, and read your story to give feedback and suggestions to make it work.
For the next few weeks, I will take you through a series of steps that will help you turn your story into a script for the stage. This can be a short theatrical piece or a full length play – what ever you decide to write.
This will lead to:
Where we will do readings of the plays at the theater. This is invaluable for any writer, to get feedback from an audience who will be very supportive of your work. We will put together the ‘readers’ of your play and you will get to hear it out loud yourself.
The cost of this 6 week online course is $90us (or similar in pesos). You can pay through paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org
We start on Monday September 3rd, and will run to the week of Friday October 13/18. (This is the writing part of the course. The stage readings will be done sometime during the season of 2018/19 at Teatro Luna Azul.)
