National Theatre School graduate Jena McLean returns to TNB this winter to host a six-week playwriting workshop. Jena has been our playwriting instructor for the past few seasons, and we’re excited and grateful to welcome her back once again to share her playwriting expertise with new and emerging playwrights via this Zoom-based workshop. 

In this 6-week program, Jena will guide participants through the process of playwriting from start to finish. Classes will cover topics such as idea generation, exploratory writing, dramatic events and objectives, structure and formatting of scripts, and character creation. Students will walk away with a deeper understanding of what it means to write a play, as well as some writing they are proud of.

Tuesdays 6:30-8:30 P.M. | January 23 – February 27, 2024
