Architecture of Plays: Political & Cultural Plays (Online)

from 275.00

When does the personal become political? Through our writing, can we truly effect change, or are we simply preaching to the converted? How can we use our dramatic ideas to inspire larger, more impactful discussions in our communities about the social, cultural and political issues that shape our future? This course will examine what it means to turn the often covertly personal into the overtly political. You’ll read the works of those that have used their writing to sharpen the conversations between brothers and sisters, men and women, neighbors and community leaders, politicians and the populace. You’ll learn the true power of words and determine the weight of dramatic ideas through the variety of dramatic structures that playwrights use in their narrative storytelling that enliven the world of their stories. Using a completely different catalogue of plays from Architecture of Plays, Part 1, we’ll look at different styles of storytelling, genres, techniques and alternative approaches to writing dramatic texts that will be helpful with your own writing.
