Chris Triebel on "The Elements of a Play", a class by Lou Lippa

Playwright in Residence, Lou Lippa, has been teaching a class here at People’s Light this summer called The Elements of a Play. Below is a response from one of the students, Chris Triebel:

This class has been a monumental help to me not just as a writer or an actor, but as an artist in general. The way he is able to dissect a play down to its basic format and illustrate it is incredible. I took this class originally to help me with some problems I was having as a writer. After the first class, I knew I was going to get a lot more than I thought. Some of the things we discussed were things I knew but were put in a way I had never thought before, some were brand new ideas, but all of it was useful. I definitely feel stronger as a writer and an actor after having taken this class.

Hi Chris,

As one of your classmates, I very much agree, and I'd love to see PLTC offer more classes like this to those of us aspiring writers, as well as those in the audience who want to get a deeper theatrical experience!
