What You'll Get

A solid grasp of the mechanics of comedy writing for the stage is a powerful tool in the hand of any playwright. While comedy is a main element of an over-the-top farce or a burning satire, it is just as essential to delicately lace comic elements into the most serious drama.

This class might be for you if you are:

  • A playwright in any stage of your career interested in the comedic form.
  • Looking to infuse your playwriting of any genre with smart, well-structured comedic elements.
In this class you will:
  • Study the specialized set of rules for comedy, which are vastly different from the dramatic form.
  • Complete writing assignments and workshops focused on these unique rules to develop your comedic work over ten weeks.
  • Shape your ideas, structure your plot, develop believable characters, and write witty dialogue.
By the end of this class you will:
  • Have a solid understanding of the principles of comedy and how to weave them into any script.
