Take advantage of our online offerings! 

 

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 and/or video conference. See website for rates. 

 

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.

 

Weekly Zoom Workshop

 

Get feedback on a finished script or one you’re just getting started on. 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 way to keep yourself focused and to connect with other playwrights across the country. 

 

We meet (virtually) Thursdays from 7 - 9:30pm EST.  Check out our website for more details and rates — and arrange to sit in on a session and see for yourself.

 

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.

New Class with Sara Holdren and Upcoming Workshops!

 Are you ready to start building something new for the theater industry? A new online class with director and theater maker Sara Holdren been added to the lineup at Primary Stages ESPA! See below for more information about this class and our upcoming workshops:


Instructor: Sara Holdren (Director and former Theater Critic for New York Magazine and Vulture.com)
Sundays from 4:00pm – 7:00pm ET
Starts March 27
Online via Zoom

Why are you a theater artist? What brought you here? What keeps you here? After months of introspection, pause, and reckoning, do you see the art-form you love transforming for the better, or not? If you could make the art you dream of making, what would it look like? How would you change the process, the practice, the world?

 

In this class—less a class than an anarchic, thoughtful meeting space—we’ll try to envision new possibilities for theater in America. We’ll read texts to ground us in a place of imagining (from Ursula Le Guin to James Baldwin to David Graeber, from whom this class’s title is affectionately borrowed), and we’ll hold as a guiding principle Judith Butler’s “ethical obligation [to be] unrealistic.” We’ll talk, we’ll free-write, and we’ll rediscover what we really want to make and how we want to make it. Come read, listen, dream, and start building something new.


UPCOMING WORKSHOPS!

AriDy Nox (Writer, Black Girl in Paris, Metropolis)
Saturday, March 26 & Sunday, March 27
12:00pm – 4:00pm
Online via Zoom

A musical is only as good as its libretto, the structural backbone of the story that allows the composition to flourish.  In this weekend workshop, you'll focus on this crucial component of musical theater, developing the tools and framework of a musical theater piece.

Instructor: Chesney Snow (Actor and Writer, Soil Beneath at Primary Stages, In Transit on Broadway)
Saturday, April 9 & Sunday, April 10
12:00pm – 4:00pm
Online via Zoom

For far too long, global majority—or BIPOC— populations have been marginalized in the Western theater-making world, and the storytelling for these populations had to become an artform of its own. In this 2-session workshop with Chesney Snow, learn the history of these theatrical forms—such as hip-hop theater, spoken word, theater of the oppressed, and the choreopoem—and begin generating your own piece, pushing the boundaries of traditional theater and reimagining what the future can be.


Start and end dates vary. Click here for the full list of writing classes.

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

Primary Stages ESPA provides students easy and convenient payment plans to break up tuition. For more information, call 212.840.9705 x215 or email espa@primarystages.org.

New Online Classes Announced at Primary Stages ESPA!

New online writing classes have been added to the lineup at Primary Stages ESPA! Whether you’re looking to tell your own story, motivate yourself to start a first draft, or revise your draft in an environment that puts the play in playwriting, we have the class for you:

Solo Performance

Instructor: Judy Gold (Emmy Award-Winning Actor, Writer, and Comedian)
Thursdays from 11:00am – 2:00pm
Starts February 24
Online via Zoom

Like Anna Deavere Smith, Nilaja Sun, John Leguizamo, Sharon Washington, Sarah Jones, Daniel Beaty, and other brave solo performers who have come before you, this class will guide you through the process of telling your personal story on stage. Led by Emmy Award-winning actor and writer Judy Gold, you’ll leave this 8-week online class with a performance piece based on your own fascinating life and a new perspective on the art of solo storytelling.

Fast First Draft

Brittany K. Allen (Writer and Actor; Redwood at Portland Center Stage, Kilroy's List)
Mondays from 7pm - 10pm ET
Starts March 7
Online via Zoom

This class is holistic, curious, delight-driven, and collaborative, cultivating group accountability and affirming all whimsical impulses. Brittany believes the first draft is about mainly getting out of your own way and taking big, bold swings. This 5-week class will emphasize a sense of play and ethical collaboration as you embark on a first draft of a new play, urging every writer to think deeply about how their identity shapes their creative point of view.

Rewriting Your Draft

Instructor: Kate Moira Ryan (Writer (with Judy Gold), 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother)
Tuesdays from 6:30pm - 9:30pm ET
Starts March 1
Online via Zoom

This class puts the play in playwright! Designed to be fun and supportive, this 8-week class will help you tackle the revision process and develop a stronger version of your play. You can work on 10-minute plays, one acts, or a full-length play of any genre (including adaptations, one-person shows, and musicals), as long as it’s for theater.

Start and end dates vary. Click here for the full list of writing classes.

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

Primary Stages ESPA provides students easy and convenient payment plans to break up tuition. For more information, call 212.840.9705 x215 or email espa@primarystages.org.
