New Play Development in the New Age

Dear <<First Name>>,

Two workshops in the same month?! Talk about an exciting May!

Our next Professional Workshop happening on May 15th with the extraordinary Nina Lee Aquino. 

In this workshop Nina will be sharing and laying out the dramaturgical process of working on a new play and what it looks like to facilitate a healthy development of a new script. Nina will also share lessons on how to navigate the relationship between dramaturg and creator from beginning to end.

Participants will need something to write with/on.

Spots are extremely limited, so sign up today before it's too late! Workshop auditors are welcome to attend but may not participate in workshop activities.

See you on May 15th from 2 PM - 4:30 PM!
