Hello Writers!

Please join us this SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6TH 12-3PM for "A Rewriting Practicum". See below for a full description of class and Lucas' extended bio.

This workshop is offered as part of New Dramatists' dual-service program which brings unique, low-cost writing classes (taught by our award-winning resident playwrights and distinguished alumni) to the general public. ALL PROCEEDS go toward an emergency fund provided for in-need writers who apply...

To enroll please write to us at ndworkshops@yahoo.com immediately. Placement is extremely limited.

A Rewriting Practicum

During this workshop we'll experiment with a series of writing exercises designed to take the misery/mystery out of rewriting and further developing unfinished plays. Come to this workshop with 5-10 pages of a draft of a play-in-progress. By the end of the workshop, you'll leave with a practical plan for how to take on draft #2.

Lucas Hnath’s plays include The Christians (2014 Humana Festival), Red Speedo (Studio Theatre, DC), A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney (Soho Rep), nightnight (2013 Humana Festival), Isaac's Eye (Ensemble Studio Theatre), Death Tax (2012 Humana Festival, Royal Court Theatre), and The Courtship of Anna Nicole Smith (Actors Theatre of Louisville). His plays are published by Dramatists Play Service.

Lucas has been a resident playwright at New Dramatists since 2011 and is a proud member of Ensemble Studio Theatre.

Lucas is a winner of the 2012 Whitfield Cook Award for Isaac’s Eye and a 2013 Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award Citation for Death Tax. He is also a recipient of commissions from the EST/Sloan Project, Actors Theatre of Louisville, South Coast Repertory, Playwrights Horizons, New York University’s Graduate Acting Program, and the Royal Court Theatre.

Lucas holds a BFA and MFA from New York University's Department of Dramatic Writing.
