Additional Details:

In this course students will experiment and explore various ways of creating and building stories for the stage. Using a combination of published and original text, we will assemble a 'play' to be performed at the end of the term. Various performance and storytelling techniques, including improvisation and theater games, will be employed as investigative tools. The subject matter, the selection of material and the means of
production, will be defined and developed by the student cohort, with faculty guidance and mentorship.
