In Recollections, participants reflect on their past experiences and learn playwriting techniques to transform key moments from their lives into dramatic vignettes. It’s a bit like journal writing, except that the writers take creative liberties in combining their past experiences with their current wisdom to reveal these moments through dialogue and action. The resulting scripts are performed by professional actors at the end of the workshop.   

This Tuesday, Playwrights Project offers this beginning playwriting program for ages 55+ at The Ink Spot in Downtown San Diego.  The workshop series will take place on October 25, November 1, 8, 15, 29, and December 6, & 13.  The final performance will be held on December 20.  This program is FREE, thanks to support from The James Irvine Foundation!  

Hear from Past Participants!


 Interviewed by teaching artist, Kaja Dunn, June Gottleib (Changing Roles) and Savannah Sincoff (Let’s Have Drinks) share their thoughts on the workshop and how their plays evolved from a initial idea to a full script.
