The essence of drama is conflict.

With this edict in mind, our Colony 20 intensive workshop will explore the very heart of playwriting and storytelling.

Read our brochure (PDF).

When creating structure for a scene, one of the first questions a playwright must ask is, "What does my character want?"

Too often, we start with a clever setup, backstory, or setting—or we focus on how the character feels—without asking this crucial question.

What does my character want and what is s/he going to do to get it?

MISSOULA COLONY 20
FOUR-DAY INTENSIVE
. . . . . . . . . .
We will explore the basic types of conflict:

Domestic (family, romance)

Economic (getting a bigger piece of the pie)

Societal (battling against accepted morality/normality)

We will engage in a variety of exercises over the course of the four-day intensive, with an overall focus on creating and developing characters who are in conflict.

Told in under 55 minutes, this coming-of-age story is played out by three actors who introduce us to high school freshman Alice, her friend and math tutor Charlie Rabbit (the White Rabbit), and the not-so-nice but ever smiling senior Kat (the Cheshire Cat), just to name a few, as they wind their way through the hallways of high school life on the way to growing up.
