Event Details

WriteSB - A series of writing workshops followed by a public reading by workshop participants. 
Please choose only one of the writing workshops. (Return to the August 11 calendar page to see a listing of all writing workshops offered).

The Play’s the Thing

This workshop gives you a chance, working with a small group of fellow participants, to write a script, rehearse and perform it for a public reading (invite your friends and family!). Each participant will create a character who wants something different from the others, causing dramatic conflict. E. Bonnie Lewis and Ken Gilbert, founders of DramaDogs Theater Company, will give hints about creating and embodying characters and will work with groups after the scripts are drafted. Final product: a rehearsed staged reading to be performed at the end of the evening.


4:45 - 7:00 pm -- writing workshop

7:00 - 7:45 pm -- private reception for workshop participants

8:00 - 9:30 pm -- public reading (library will re-open and workshop participants will have an opportunity to read their work in the Fireplace Room)
