JAN. 24: Playwriting Seminar

Sharon Pollock, the author of “Blood Relations” which opens this week at the Lakeside Little Theatre, is coming to Ajijic to see the production of her own play, and will be giving a playwriting seminar at the theater on Friday, January 24.  She is a distinguished Canadian playwright, and was honored (for this play) with the Governor-General’s Award for Drama in 1981.

If you are interested in plays and the skills of playwriting, the seminar “The Write Stuff for the Stage” is a unique opportunity to learn from a successful and dedicated professional with many awards and no less than 45 plays to her credit. 

Pollock writes: “Maybe you’ve got a draft of a play in hand.  Or perhaps your play is stillborn in your mind, it’s all there, you just seem unable to get it out.  Or you’re just a lover of theater, and interested in the journey of craft and imagination undertaken by the playwright in moving a story from the back of the brain through page to stage.”

Whatever the reason, Sharon invites you to join her for a stimulating afternoon of interactive discussion and dialogue.

The seminar will cost 100 pesos for LLT members (including season ticket holders), and 200 pesos for non-members.  Registration is at the theater at 12.30 p.m. on Friday, January 24 and the seminar will commence at 1 p.m.
