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.
