Script Frenzy is Dead. Long Live Script Frenzy!

A four-week workshop for writers

April 2015
Sunday evenings
Pasadena, CA

Because I love Los Angeles theatre, I've decided to offer my upcoming script-writing workshop for just $9 per class ($36 total).

Learn more about the threat to L.A.'s intimate theatre at or on Twitter at @99seatsLA.

In olden times (2007-2012), people around the world would come together after the vernal equinox for a month of writing scripts. This orgiastic pagan ritual came to be known as "Script Frenzy."

Script Frenzy has gone the way of our forebears, but you don't have to let the tradition die. Join us this April for a four-week workshop that will help you transform your idea into a script.

Each week will focus on a topic: conflict, character, structure, and theme. Over four two-hour sessions, we'll use guided exercises, free-writing, and workshopping to help you generate and refine your story as you develop it into a feature, TV pilot, or play.

Script Frenzy is dead. Long live Script Frenzy!
