About this course:

The Play’s the Thing is an interactive workshop featuring professional actors who perform scenes from contemporary and classic plays, and has been offered every year since 2005. In this one-day course, we show short scenes from staged plays on video, but also present actors performing monologues live via Zoom. We compare comic genres including broad physical comedy, comedy of manners, word and wit humor, satire, and farce. Participants discuss what makes us laugh, what touches our hearts, and what helps us live richer lives in tough times.
