Theater Squared offers a playwriting master class and an Artist Forum on December 7 at 4:30 pm-6:00pm and 6:30pm-7:30 pm respectively for a full evening at the Fayetteville Public Library (AR).
Adapting a literary classic for stage can be daunting…but also fun. Live theatre and prose fiction work under radically different principles. What are the first steps for the writer? What are the essential questions to bear in mind throughout the process? Class size will be limited and registration required. Playwriting Master Class at 4:30 pm-6:00 pm in the FPL Walker Room, is free.
Following the workshop, At 6:30pm Ozarks at Large host Kyle Kellams has an intimate conversation with Robert Ford, novelist, playwright and TheatreSquared artistic director, who adapted Dickens’ Great Expectations for T2’s current season. Conversation highlights will be broadcast on KUAF 91.3FM.
Admission is free and public invited. Great Expectations will run November 30, 2016 through New Year’s Day, 2017 at the Walton Arts Center’s Nadine Baum Studios.
