Workshop with Leigh Fondakowski – Head Writer, The Laramie Project and one of my favorite plays last year, Spill. The workshop is called “Creating Theatre From Real Events: A Workshop With Leigh Fondakowski”. During this hands-on workshop you will work closely with Leigh to create dramatic works based on real-life stories. You will experience the step-by-step process of working theatrically with raw material when contemplating the early stages of new work. By working with Leigh on one of her theatrical productions currently in development you will explore such questions as: How do you develop material theatrically? What is the relationship between the content and theatrical form? How do you decide if there is a play in your idea when working with history and real events?
