Monday, Oct. 12, 2015
A play about life and love. James and Beth hook up after a night of heavy drinking. Nearly sixty years later, they're still together. Act 1 follows James and Beth, a couple in their 20's, as they navigate the early stages of a relationship. In Act 2, the couple, now in their 50's, struggle with job loss, mounting debt and an unexpected pregnancy. Act 3 leads us into their 80's as James is forced to cope with his wife's deteriorating mental health.

The Playwrights' Center of San Francisco is offering monthly 3-hour playwriting workshops beginning in February. At the time of this announcement, PCSF has lined up Stuart Bousel, Anthony Clarvoe, Megan Cohen, Lauren Gunderson, Patricia Milton, and Rodney Vaccaro to teach a class this year with more TBA.
13 Ways of Looking at a Character with Anthony ClarvoeWriting drama is writing people. Not just any people: people who want things from each other, badly, now, and act to try to get them. But a cast of characters isn't just a bunch of desiring people; it's a constellation of ways to be in the world. It's a web of relationships. A character is an opportunity for an actor to show the world what she has to share about human experience. How do we do all this, while telling our stories and exploring our themes? Award-winning, internationally produced playwright and teacher Anthony Clarvoe will share a baker's dozen (and probably a few more) ways to bring your people to life.
