A Reading and Discussion Session -

STOLEN GIRL SONG:

A Table Reading and Stage Writing Discussion

with the Author

Following a table reading of her play, STOLEN GIRL SONG author, playwright and librettist Elizabeth Searle will discuss the process for developing her 10-minute one-act, one-woman play which began with a character from her novel Girl Held In Home.

 

If you’ve ever wanted to try writing for the stage, possibly by adapting a work of your own fiction as a short play, then this performance and discussion might help light your theatrical fire.
