Rage Structure with Rob Askins at Primary Stages ESPA

So you want to write a play. Is it going to be sweet? Pretty? Urbane? If so, take another class. During this 2-day workshop with Robert Askins, Tony Award-nominated author of Broadway’s deliciously devilish Hand to God, we’re going to explore our rage.

Instructor: Robert Askins (Hand to God on Broadway, EST, and MCC; Permission at MCC)
Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23
12:00pm – 3:00pm both days

This class might be for you if you:
  • Are angry, disappointed, almost livid. 
  • Love works like Blasted, Look Back in Anger, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 
In this class you will:
  • Talk about how you can yell at the world through the megaphone of the stage. 
  • Investigate the relationship between raw energy and formal restraint, harnessing the two for more electrifying and dynamic writing. 
  • Delve into exercises and discussion to find the balance between fury and discipline.

By the end of this class you will:
  • Understand how to channel your rage and passion into powerful theater that lights the audience ablaze.

Our award-winning faculty, comprised of working professionals in the field, provides practical skills and expert guidance in a collaborative community atmosphere.
