The Play’s the Thing: a four-week digital workshop for ten-minute plays

Good news:  it can be anything you want it to be!  It just has to be something.

This four-week digital workshop is committed to turning your idea into something — an actual play script.  We’ll clamp down on what we like about basic structures for a ten-minute play, and then we’ll get into the fun stuff:

  • How words absolutely matter, and also how they don’t matter at all
  • How your play looks with no budget, and also with an infinite budget
  • How to refine your best ideas, and also how to write without a clue

There will be more covered, too, as well as opportunities to read and discuss scripts in class.
It’s gonna be a good time.  Let’s do this thing.

Harrison Young (he/him) is the Knoxville Ambassador for the Dramatists Guild of America and the Literary Manager for the Tennessee Stage Company.  As a Theatre graduate from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and Improvisation alum from the Peoples Improv Theater-NYC, he has performed in many comedies and new works which taught him how to write his own comedies. He recently began Next Rung Productions, a program in which he mentors a local playwright each year as they create a new play from scratch.
