The Second City’s approach to playwriting is focused on two elements: improvisational writing and storytelling structure. In the first course in this program, students will gain the skills to generate from abundance, create three-dimensional characters and explore their stories. Over the course of this eight-week class, students will develop several short pieces, culminating in a revised ten-minute play that will be ready for submission to one of the many festivals around the country.
Recommended next level: Playwriting Level 2
