Memoir Theatre: Writing the stories of our lives. Students will play writing games to unearth what you care about, what enrages you, what hurt you, what shamed you, what lifted you, what you lost, what you gained, how you triumphed. Learn from memoir pieces by Roxane Gay, Jesmyn Ward, David Sedaris, Kiese Laymon, and Jeannette Walls, and talk about ways to make theatre from memoir. In the last class each student will read or perform a short memoir piece, for a Zoom showcase.
This class is ideal for students who consider themselves beginners.
