Master Class: Adapting Novels for the Stage: Lessons from a Master Playwright

Venue: Mechanics' Institute - Meeting Room, 4th Floor

Building on the lessons offered in the first class (see above), this two-hour master class will focus on the writing mechanics of transforming a prose-based literary work into a stage play.  Matthew Spangler will also discuss copyright concerns and strategies for gaining permission to adapt another’s work.  Participants will have the opportunity to try their hand at creating their own adaptation and are encouraged to bring along a short text or portion of a longer text they might want to adapt.  

Members $49; Public $59
