The Old Globe and The arcHIVe project team up for a FREE playwriting workshop for the HIV-affected community!

The Old Globe in Balboa Park and The ArcHIVe Project invite members of the HIV and HIV-affected community 18 and older to participate in The Old Globe Community Voices, an initiative dedicated to teaching Playwriting skills to adult community members.

Accepted participants will take part in workshops taught by Globe Artist Katherine Harroff, where they will learn to develop short plays which will be presented in a professional public reading at the Old Globe upon completion of the course. Participants will explore theatrical possibilities embedded in their individual or shared experiences. Emphasis will be given to building skills in playwriting and performance, which will be explored through a variety of creative writing and performance activities.

The workshops are free however this program is not intended for skilled and experienced Playwrights, but rather for community members interested in gaining a new tool for creative expression.

Following the public reading, The ArcHIVe Project will continue to work with participants to develop their script into a fully staged production so participants can see their vision brought to life.
