The Play's The Thing: How to
by Ruth Kozak
Journalist, playwright, historical novelist, poet, writing instructor
**Assisting Ruth will be special guest, Jay Hamburger, Artistic Director of the Vancouver-based company, Theatre in The Raw**
We all enjoy the theatre, whether it's a full-length drama or a short skit. But how do you write a play? This is a different medium to a novel and uses a different narrative form. A good play, whether drama or comedy, is carried by mystery and the questions the play poses. Come and learn the difference and dare to write a short play during this 90-minute workshop.
