503Studio Masterclass: Personal, Political and Metaphysical Arcs
How do we write engaging plays that feel personal yet have a larger political, metaphysical arc without sounding didactic? Together with Kyo Choi, you’ll look at plays that have achieved this and discuss how to blend dramatic storytelling with political or socio-economic issues, research and how to create characters that don’t lecture.
