NHWP Onstage – Playwriting with the NHWP

In partnership with the Palace Theatre (Manchester), the New Hampshire Writers’ Project is launching, NHWP Onstage, an in-depth six-week series of workshops exploring the art of playwriting. This will be the first time in more than 30 years that the NHWP will offer a full program dedicated to the art of drama.

For six weeks every Saturday morning, we will provide an in-depth playwriting curriculum with professional playwrights from the Boston area. These workshops are designed for both experienced and beginning writers. They will explore the fundamental elements of dramatic writing and how to best tell a story on-stage. Each workshop will focus on one specific element, including character, plot, rhythm, dialogue, and more. In-class exercises and conversation will help dig deep into each week’s theme, and provide skills that writers can apply to their own new and pre-existing works. Writers can pick the courses they think will be most useful, or take them all and come out of the semester with a full toolbox!

In addition, we are running an optional intensive composition program that meets Saturday afternoons after the morning workshops. This composition program will be focused on taking the basics learned in the morning sessions and creating original Ten Minute Plays. The resulting plays will be produced and performed as rehearsed readings on March 28 at The Palace Theatre’s Spotlight Room.
