Zoomaturgy: The Ten-Minute Virtual Play

In this workshop we’ll be exploring and producing our own versions of the ten-minute play—Zoom-style. In addition to exploring some classic examples of the form, students will also be writing their own short plays with an eye toward the unique dramatic potential of various live-stream platforms (Zoom, Facebook Live, Instagram Live, YouTube, etc.). Students will have the opportunity to serve as both playwrights, dramaturges, and, if willing, actors!
