Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts (ESPA) Short Forms

As a reader of NYC Playwrights, you’re well aware that short plays are in incredibly high demand. Each day, it seems there are more and more calls for short plays, and developing a strong portfolio of short plays is one of the fastest ways to become a produced playwright. This class at Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts (ESPA) will help you hone your short form skills.

with Stefanie Zadravec (Writer, The Electric Baby at Two River Theatre Company)
Short plays require an ability to convey character, effective dialogue, and action without extensive exposition, and in this 10-week class, you'll learn how not to waste a single word. From this class, you'll take away the skills to craft surprising pieces of theater, regardless of length, that reflect something deeper about the world at large, and you'll be well on your way to compiling a portfolio of submission-ready short plays.
