Primary Stages ESPA
New York, NY 10018
In this new 10-week class, you will work on scenes by the 2018/19 Primary Stages Season playwrights: A.R. Gurney, Theresa Rebeck, and Leah Nanako Winkler. The Primary Stages Artistic Team will share their insight that comes from an intimate connection with these playwrights.
Thursdays from 6:30pm – 9:30pm
September 20 – December 13
This class might be for you if you:
---Are committed to working on your craft and deepening your scene work skills using texts by of-the-moment playwrights.
---Are a self-motivated actor ready to dedicate out-of-class time to rehearse with your scene partner.
In this class you will:
---Make bold choices and ask the right questions to tackle the challenging demands of the form, structure, and language of the playwrights in our 2018/19 season: A.R. Gurney, Theresa Rebeck, and Leah Nanako Winkler.
---Explore the voices and style of each of these playwrights and, taking your personal goals into consideration, determine with Casey, Andrew, and Erin the scenes that best meet these goals.
---Work on 3 scenes over the course of the ten weeks. The hope is that everyone will get on their feet each class, but this needs to remain fluid as each process is different.
---Build on what your talent and intellect bring to your scene work in a room where you feel safe to make mistakes and make strong choices.
---Receive a complimentary ticket to A.R. Gurney's Final Follies, the first show of the Primary Stages Season.
By the end of this class you will:
---Have valuable rehearsal skills and be able to identify the core action and spine of a scene, and translate this into your character work and rehearsal process.
---Find the joy of discovery in the sometimes frustrating process of getting specific in your work.
---Develop a deeper understanding of the works of A.R. Gurney, Theresa Rebeck, and Leah Nanako Winkler by working with experts on their writing.
