Memoir as Monologue is a three-Day Play Lab intensive with a public SHOWCASE performance Sept. 12, 2023, 7:00 p.m., online with guest actors, produced by Kelly DuMar. All writers will have the chance to have their monologue performed in the showcase, with a follow up Q&A. This workshop will help you artistically express what you’ve overcome and achieved, and creatively share your experience to benefit others through the medium of theater. You’ll learn how to write successful dramatic monologues based on your life that are personally meaningful, emotionally satisfying, and relevant and engaging for an audience. Through writing prompts and creative exploration, you’ll develop your ordinary and extraordinary life experiences into powerful, dramatic monologues that can be performed by an actor––or you––with universal appeal. We’ll include a discussion of elements of dramatic structure, including the role of conflict, plot, communicating subtext, voice, narrative, and the importance of set-up. New writing will be generated and revised daily. Beginning and experienced writers are welcome.
