Talking Tech

A workshop for playwrights! Suggested donation of $25 (pay what you can/will)

Ashley Lauren Rogers has been very vocal that she DESPISED writing stage directions. She'd worry "Am I telling too much, am I not writing enough," but her main worry was, "Am I telling another theatre professional how to do their job?" In this workshop, we will get to the bottom of how to craft dialogue and stage directions that are specific, interesting, and help your fellow theatre-makers get excited to help bring your words to the stage!
