Winter 2020 Workshops
NEW YEAR, NEW PLAY
Instructor: Jacqueline Goldfinger
All workshops at Theatre Exile – 1340 S 13th St
Monday, 2/24 (DATE CHANGE) – 6:00pm-10:00pm
Fulfill your New Year’s resolution by beginning a new play or trying your hand at playwriting!
Theatre Exile is known for pushing boundaries on-stage. We’ll look at a few scenes from
previous Exile shows and discuss why they work, then we’ll do writing exercises that will give
you material to begin a new play this year, or simply give you the opportunity to give
playwriting a try. No experience required for this workshop, but do bring pen and paper, or a
computer. You will be expected to write, and will have the opportunity to share some of your
in-class writing, if you wish.
