I believe that all my own best writing has happened under pressure, and very fast. I also believe that I need to say it, shout it and move it before I give it to actors. I am very excited to lead a two day workshop for playwrights in which I will guide you through fast, immediate, uncensored writing, which will culminate in a performance of the most powerful theatrical words written in the workshop. We can do this, and it will be breath-taking.
