Class: PLAYWRITING Level 2: Complications And The One-Act Play May 2024


Join Dr. C. Austin Hill (call him Chris) for a month-long online playwriting class! Chris has over a decade of college-level teaching experience, and has taught playwriting at universities across the US.  Chris is an accomplished director and dramaturg–and is the Artistic Director for Theatre Off-Kilter–the perfect choice to help you grow as a playwright. At the end of the class, playwrights can expect to have completed a solid draft of a NEW ONE-ACT PLAY!

In May we will be offering a 4-week virtual course at just $100! This class will meet for 2-hours each week between May 5 and 26. Class sizes will be capped at 10 to ensure personal attention, lots of opportunities to share and receive feedback on your work, and the chance to build relationships with others.

ALL AGES ARE WELCOME– If I have enough people under the age of 18, I will split off a special youth-oriented class.

REGISTER 2 or more people for a 10% discount for everyone!!



This class is built for Intermediate playwrights, of for ANYONE looking to work on a new one-act play.

How do you know if you are intermediate? Close your eyes–ask yourself:

  • Have I taken a playwriting class before–at Theatre Off-Kilter or elsewhere?
  • Am I comfortable with my skills in creating dialogue, in using descriptive language, and in negotiating the structure of a plot?
  • Am I ready to crack off a one-act play right now, or to continue working on one I wrote before?

If you have answered yes to any or all of these questions, this class probably perfect for you! If not, you might want to look closely at the other levels offered this month.  If, however, you think your skills can benefit from:

  • A pace appropriate for those who have written for the stage before, but desire structured scaffolded weekly assignments
  • A supportive and non-competitive environment built to unlock your creativity
  • A structure intended to help you build upon your existing skills

Then this is the class for you.

REGISTER TODAY! You will receive a special invitation to Zoom, where the class will be hosted.
