This class is full and registration is closed.

Each week a different Chicago-based playwright will discuss one of his or her plays with the class. Ranging from established plays which have had a number of productions to scripts still in development, this seminar will give participants an intimate glimpse into the creative process and a unique opportunity to engage in an in-depth dialogue with local playwrights. Participating playwrights include Will Dunne, Susan Lieberman, Andrew Hinderaker, Elaine Romero, and Artist Director of Chicago Dramatists Russ Tutterow.

Todd Bauer, who holds an M.A. in liberal studies from Northwestern University, is a playwright and director whose work has been staged in Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York.
