Become a Playwright! Tell the Stories of Hidden Heroes

Sunday, January 19 | 12-4 pm

Ages 12+

$125 per student ($100 per Member)   


Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day by exploring the stories of the hidden heroes of the Civil Rights Movement! When history and theater are combined, writers can tell important true stories from the past with the immediacy of the present moment. Writers will become equal parts journalist and dramatist as they investigate Civil Rights-era documents and artifacts from the New York Historical Society's collection! Writers will ask questions and interact with sources before translating the story to the stage in the form of a monologue or short play. At the end of the workshop, writers will have the option of submitting their theatrical work to Writopia Lab's off-Broadway Worldwide Plays Festival.
