Using the structure focused playwrighting process of "PlayMath," we will unpack dramatic form, character arch, and how finding the ending of your play will not only let you finish the damn thing but also truly start it. Students will share work on day two of the intensive. Copies of David Ball's Backwards And Forwards are recommended.
