Taking the Scenic Route

“Taking the Scenic Route” explores how to construct compelling scenes that can stand alone or support a full-length play. A moderated and diverse panel maps out ways to enhance a scene with subtext and tension, conflict and negotiation, and then surveys how a series of scenes of escalating intensity leads toward climax, resolution, and revelation: from aha! to ahhh.
Panelists will share their tips for creating scenes and what they have learned about their scripts by watching and listening to actors and directors in read-through and rehearsal. Aspiring and experienced writers are invited to join the conversation.
