In a time of upheaval, tragedy and reckoning, theater can be a transcendent space where we gather to listen to, write with and share support with other humans. This workshop will invite you to dig around in the playwright’s toolkit to borrow tools that can be used for writing in all genres—enriching our craft, sparking new ideas and cracking open our approaches to our own genres anew. We’ll explore three key playwriting elements (voice, space and movement) as we listen, share, read, brainstorm and write in a nourishing, communal space. Bring your curiosities and hungers, your struggles and compassions. We’d love to have you.


Featured Writers Include:

Our Participants Say it Best

"The Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start the year off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the hotel’s friendly atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
