This workshop will look at how we can strengthen our scenes so that they are not only funny, but interesting. The fastest way to this is relationship--that the people talking mean something to each other. We will focus on deepening the impact we have on one another onstage, and to do that we will be working on expanding our concept of character vulnerability-- our characters sharing things that are not easy for them to share-- in order to incite emotional responses that cause for deeper affects and higher stakes.
