A Roundabout TheatreLab workshop by Miranda Haymon.
Over the course of four two-hour sessions, this lab will put directors in the position to adapt, direct, and produce their own new works for the stage. Please come to the first session prepared with source material. Details regarding how to select source material will be sent ahead of our first session.
All sessions to be conducted over Zoom.

Exploring the Source Material: In our intro week, we will dive deep into our source texts to begin laying the groundwork for narrative, structure, and character.
February 24, 10am–12pm EST
Activating the Text: Using inspiration from our text analysis, we will explore ways to further activate our adaptations utilizing physical, visual and sonic theatrical tools.
March 3, 10am–12pm EST
Adaptor as Director: We will discuss strategies and techniques when directing work that you’ve adapted yourself. When and how do you take the lead? And when do you look towards your collaborators?

Adaptor as Producer: In our final class, we will go from beginning to end of what it takes to self-produce your new adaptation.
