Join the Playwrights' Center for a benefit to champion playwrights on May 4, 2013, at Uppercut Boxing Gym. There will be plenty of pugilistic entertainment, including the playwright auction, where you can bid on the opportunity to have one of our playwrights write a play on the spot just for you, which will be performed at the end of the night by some of the Twin Cities' finest actors.Event Details

If you've ever asked the questions Who am I? How did I get here? then you have already started to probe the two most basic questions that make up the story of your life. How you answer these questions for your characters when constructing the arc of your play can mean the difference between a plot that grips your audience from start to finish and one that doesn't. This seminar will not only look at how plot influences your play's structure but provide problem-solving techniques for revising a plot that's gotten away from you.Event Details
