Playwrights Foundation- The 35th Annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival, July 20-29, 2012

The 35th Annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival, July 20-29, 2012 is fast
approaching and early bird discounts have been extended through July 12th!!

For a closer look at what the Festival offers, let’s zoom in on Gordon Dahlquist. Emerging playwright and published novelist, his plays include Messalina, Delirium Paace andVortex Du Plaisir, and his novel, the NY Time bestseller The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. Dahlquist’s Tea Party twists our perceptions of time and space to explore the shady, and very present political terror hovering on the edges of America’s very near future. Gordon explains in a recent blog post:…Tea Party is a…story of insurrection, civil unrest, sectarian violence, divided government, and foreign interference – which just happens to be set in Colorado.

Playwrights Foundation- Crack That Proverbial Whip, Creative Minds! Playwriting Class

Crack That Proverbial Whip, Creative Minds!

We are pleased to extend a discount for Eugenie Chan’s popular, tried-and-true, get-off-your-laurels-and-finally-finish-that-draft class with the PF New Play Institute! If you or someone you know has had that play in a drawer and is hoping 2012 is the year to meet that goal, Eugenie’s class is the perfect environment to nudge it into reality. Save 20% if you sign up and register by February 20th.

Crack That Whip with Eugenie Chan
Go from solid ideas to a solid first draft in 10 weeks!

DATES:
February 28th – May 1st, 2012 (no class April 3)

COST:
Regular Cost: $375
Discount Cost: $300 (save 20%)

Eugenie Chan, ground-breaking playwright, noted for The Cutting Ball’s premiere of Bone To Pick has the know-how to motivate and challenge you!

A rare treat to study with Eugenie for 10-weeks!
EXTRA DISCOUNT: $300 if paid by Feb 20th! / Regular Price $375

Past students of Eugenie Chan’s Crack That Whip had the following to say about her class:

“Eugenie is a wonderful teacher. She has a quiver-full of ideas, prompts and exercises to tease out new approaches to your work, to encourage you to go deeper and farther. Also (despite the title of the course), she’s a generous and kind guide who puts the focus on the work (rather than, say, herself). It’s a pure pleasure to be in the room with her.”
–Elizabeth Gjelten, playwright, BAPF alum & NPI student

“I drafted my new play in Eugenie Chan’s workshop in 2009, and recently rewrote it during Anthony Clarvoe’s workshop. The play has been accepted for production in San Francisco this August! Eugenie creates a safe, thoughtful and creative space for writers. Her generous instruction and creative exercises were instrumental in getting the play developed thus far. I recommend Eugenie’s PF workshop highly.”
–Patricia, playwright & NPI student

“…[Through Eugenie’s exercises], you realize you know more about your play than you thought you did, that you have already created that world in your mind, you just haven’t put the words to it yet.”
–Nara, NPI student
