Black Women Playwrights' Group Presents Playwriting Workshop 5/19

Have you been carrying around a zippy, fresh idea that you know would make a great play? Are questions about play structure holding you back? Is it a ten-minute play? Is it a one act? Is my idea big enough for a full-length? How far can you let your imagination explore? Can you really have a talking parrot on stage!? Do you know your idea is great but you're not sure if it fits within the "rules" of playwriting? Not sure what the "rules" of playwriting are? Come and work with veteran playwright Caleen Sinnette Jennings and learn how to create a sound foundation for an exciting idea that will grab your audience by the lapels and make them think, laugh, cry!
