March meeting

Tuesday, March 13, 2018
TOPIC: Playwriting
SPEAKER: Laurie Fyffe
What makes a play different from other forms of writing? How do you get the characters to tell your story? What
exactly is ‘dramatic action’? And how does the playwright craft dialogue to serve both characters and plot?
It’s all about wants and desires.
BIO: Laurie Fyffe is a playwright, dramaturge, actor, arts administrator and Artistic Director of Evolution Theatre, Ottawa. She is a member of CAEA, ACTRA, and the Playwrights Guild of Canada.
