The Actors Centre

Award-Winning American Female Playwrights

WHAT IS IT? This workshop will introduce you to and give you hands-on experience with the voices of award-winning American female playwrights from the past to the present. HOW WILL IT WORK? Learn about, discuss and work on scenes from Pulitzer Prize-winning American female playwrights such as Marsha Norman, Paula Vogel, Suzan-Lori Parks and Annie Baker. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? In addition to working first hand with a team of two American coaches - one on a special visit from the states and one currently working here - you will walk away with a stronger understanding of some of America’s greatest female playwrights, some new options for audition pieces and the opportunity to stretch and improve your American accent in a nurturing environment.
