There's something for everyone at The Playwrights Group


There’s Something for everyone @ TPG



Script Consultations

 

Have a script you want feedback on?  Just send a PDF of your script and you’ll get the answers you’re looking for via email, phone or video conference. 

 

Richard Caliban has worked with  individuals on their scripts from all over the world — Indonesia, China, Greece, Australia, Serbia, as well as right here in New York. A script consultation will provide you with feedback on the structural soundness of your story, the dramatic arc of your protagonist, thematic unity and much more.

 

Online One-on-One Courses

 

If you’re looking for more, check out our One on One Online Playwriting Courses:

 

       The Art of Playwriting

       Write a Play in 10 Weeks

 

Both are One on One with instructor Richard Caliban, who has spent his life in rehearsal rooms getting words on a page up onto a stage. And since it’s One on One, the courses can be adjusted to fit your level of experience. 

 

Weekly Zoom Workshop

 

During the current crisis, the weekly workshop has moved online to a Zoom meeting. We read everything from a one page scene to a full length. Plays, musicals, film scripts — whatever it is you’re working on. This is a great opportunity for those not in the NYC area. 

 

We meet (virtually) Thursdays from 7 - 9:30pm EST. Check out the website for more details.
