Writing Workshop: Deborah Stein

Mar 10 2012 - 12:00pm -- 3:00pm

New Dramatists continues it's initiative to bring monthly, low-cost writing workshops to the general public with Deborah Stein's "Character Recipes". Please join us Saturday, March 10th from 12-3pm at New Dramatists for just $40!

Come ready to investigate multiple, surprising, invigorating ways of creating character—from image to caricature, from desire to rhythm. With Deborah, you'll look at ways a wide array of writers have tackled the problems (and joys) of inventing personas, of making something from nothing, and do some quick exercises creating lots of seeds for potential characters and potential plays. You'll learn from the masters and steal from the best. Come prepared to read a little, talk a little, and write a lot.

Deborah's workshop is part of a dual-service program designed by the residents of New Dramatists. All proceeds go towards an Emergency Fund for writers in-need who apply.

Space is extremely limited. Please email ndworkshops@yahoo.com right away for placement.

Deborah Stein’s work has been seen nationally at Actors’ Theatre of Louisville, Theatre @ Boston Court, the Guthrie, the Public, DTW, and Ars Nova; and internationally in Poland, Ireland, Edinburgh (the Traverse) and Prague. Deborah has collaborated on original ensemble works and site-specific installations with artists including Joseph Chaikin, Dominique Serrand, and most frequently the Pig Iron Theatre Company, with whom she has collaborated since 2000 on six original works. She has received a Bush Fellowship, two Jerome Fellowships, and a McKnight Advancement Grant at the Playwrights’ Center, and is published in Theatre Forum, Play: A Journal of Plays, and The Best American Poetry of 1996. She has been resident artist at Hedgebrook, Swarthmore, Princeton, and Tofte Lake Center, and has taught at Yale, NYU, the New School, Northeastern, and Brown University, where she received her MFA. Deborah was formerly co-producing director of the Workhaus Collective in Minneapolis, and is a current resident playwright at New Dramatists. Most recently her play Chimera, a collaboration with Suli Holum, was produced at HERE as part of Under the Radar.
