STRANGER THAN FICTION | playwriting workshop & public performance

In the satirical poem Don Juan (1823), the English Romantic poet Lord Byron writes:

“'Tis strange - but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction; if it could be told, How much would novels gain by the exchange!” With this sentiment in mind, this exploratory writing workshop invites participants to mine personal histories and historical narratives alongside found objects and texts to write original monologues, scenes, and short plays about the human condition. This workshop can accommodate up to 12 participants. Participants will be confirmed on a first come/first served basis while spots remain.
