THTR 170 - Playwriting

Critical analysis of dramatic structure for the playwright. Scenarios, character studies, writing of original plays. Also listed as ENGL 193W. (5 units)

"Playwriting is a study of how to write these scores, through an investigation of craft elements inherent to the form, with the balancing of students' idiosyncratic imaginations. We explore ... this dialogue of craft and imagination through a series of generative writing assignments." -Brian Thorstenson
