In order to write a good play you need a good idea. But how do you generate ideas? How do you know which ones are good and which ones aren't? How do you develop an idea into a story? And when you run into trouble along the way, when do you keep working and when do you toss the whole thing out and start again?
Working with your own ideas is one of the most magical, frustrating, and rewarding parts of the writing process. In this three-session workshop, we'll work through a series of exercises and discussions to practice generating, refining, and pruning ideas. The first session will focus on idea generation and selection, the second session on refinement and translation into the structure of a play, and then everyone in the class will write a short play. For the third session we'll be joined by a pair of PlayGround company actors for a workshop reading and discussion.

Daniel Heath is a PlayGround Resident Playwright and a former member of the PlayGround Writers Pool for seven seasons. He is a four-time winner of the PlayGround Emerging Playwright award (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011) and recipient of three PlayGround commissions (2009, 2010, and 2012). His short and long plays have been performed across the country. His play, DUST TO DUST, was a 2014 PlayGround Festival of New Works finalist.
