Building Characters from the Ground Up

This 4 week workshop will be offered remotely on 10/14, 10/21, 11/4, and 11/11 from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Based on Michael’s book Playwriting in Process (which has been used around the world by playwrights, screenwriters, novelists and several theatre companies), this six week workshop will provide attendees with a myriad of exploration exercises (called etudes) in order to develop characters with lives and personalities that are fully realized and deeply human, from heroes to villains and the rest of us. By the end of the six weeks, each participant will have a collection of characters from which to draw for any work they choose to develop as a result of the character etudes.
