Writing & Performing the Two Minute Play

Leah & Trevor: Wednesdays 7PM-10PM - 4/4-5/23
Nick & Malic: Saturdays 12PM-3PM - 4/7-5/26

Price: $250


In this introductory class, students explore core Neo-Futurist tenets of honesty, brevity, chance and audience interaction in order to create short plays in our unique, non-illusory aesthetic. Using games and exercises, weekly writing challenges and regular in-class workshops, students learn specific play formulas and styles that recur on our stage. In the second half of the class, the student ensemble follows a version of the Neo-Futurists’ weekly creative process to pitch, rehearse and perform a delectable menu of their own original two-minute plays. This final show is open to the public, and presented on our stage at The Neo-Futurarium.
