CORE Project 1 on 1 Private Sessions

THE CORE PROJECT is an on-going intensive workshop for writers, directors and actors (or any combination thereof) to develop new plays. Playwrights will receive a 1 on 1 consultation with the artistic director about their play. Then they will have 4 private sessions to work on developing their script and work with a director and actors to have their play read.

Plays from the CORE Project will be considered for the Play Reading Series and for development. Plays developed within the workshop will also be considered for production in the Strawberry One-Act Theatre Festival. Some of the plays that are finalists in the festival go on to be published in The Best Plays From The Strawberry One-Act Festival anthologies.

The CORE Project will be led by artistic director and producer Van Dirk Fisher.  Enrollment is limited.  Day time and evening time slots are available for each playwright enrolled in the CORE Project.
