Robey Theatre Company, the twenty-year-old non-profit organization founded by Danny Glover and Ben Guillory dedicated to the continued achievement of excellence in Black Theatre, announces The Robey Theatre Company Playwrights Lab will meet in a ten-week session on the Cal State L.A. campus, from June 13 to August 22.
THE ROBEY THEATRE PLAYWRIGHTS LAB has refined itself. It is an Intensive 10 week program focused on the craft of playwriting. Designed for aspiring writers with works in progress, it offers weekly, one-on-one meetings with resident dramaturg Dylan Southard to address the unique challenges of structure, style and theme that each play presents as it evolves. The Robey Playwrights Lab is tailored to the needs of its writers, providing a place where participants can ask questions, experiment with ideas, and continue to build their stories. There will be a good deal of flexibility and a great deal of personal attention to the creation of individual processes and the working and development of craft/technique. The Lab culminates in workshop readings of text from each writer. There is room for a maximum of 10 writers.
Cost for the series is $200 per participant (for the ten-week session). To apply, submit without delay a Resume and a writing sample of a one-act or full-length play (first drafts are okay) to firstname.lastname@example.org . Questions? Call (213) 489-7402.
Classes will be held weekly on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning June 13 to August 22, except July 4. The location: California State University, Los Angeles, Music Building Room MUS-129, 5151 State University Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90032.
