A Roundabout TheatreLab workshop by Emily Feldman.
What to do when you have an idea.
In her essay, “Where Do You Get Your Ideas From?” Ursula K. La Guinn wrote, “The more I think about the word “idea,” the less idea I have what it means….I think this is a kind of shorthand use of ‘idea’ to stand for the complicated, obscure, un-understood process of the conception and formation of what is going to be a story when it gets written down.”
In this lab, we’ll look at strategies for how to move from “idea” to a new play. We’ll work on locating your unique stories, finding a theatrical container that reflects your individual taste and style, and start a new writing project from scratch. Come with a topic you’re excited to write about or just a desire to start something new!
