Kumu Kahua Theatre proudly presents a writer’s workshop with acclaimed playwright, Y York.
WHAT TO DO WITH A FIRST DRAFT
This is a two-hour endeavor designed to provide playwrights with a process with which they can assess what is there, what is missing, and how to revise their manuscript once it is in draft form. A demonstration whereby the playwright becomes the Encyclopedia Britannica about the script before sharing it with other professionals. The focus is on: pivotal character; character traits; given circumstances, action; dramatic action; major dramatic question; premise.
Bobo is a little slow. His abusive father wants to send him away. Selling newspapers on the street, Bobo scrounges for a little money. Despite injuries, harassment, and discrimination, Bobo never complains after all, he may not have much, but Bobo does have one thing: a true friend. Da Beer Can Hat is based on Darrell Lum’s original short story of a mentally handicapped individual and his one, best friend.
