About this course:

Great theater has the power to both entertain and inspire. At its best, a play can inform and even transform lives. In this lively, thought-provoking workshop, scenes are performed from plays that reveal the conflicts, joys, and journeys of our lives. Offered every year since 2005, this popular interactive workshop features all new plays with professional actors, directed by director/playwright Beverly Olevin, performing dynamic scenes from contemporary and classic plays. Each week, scenes are presented that explore specific themes. Participants discuss the universal themes the plays express. Lecture and discussion focuses on the role theater has played throughout history and the basic human need to share and learn from our stories.
