- et al.
This is a comprehensive account of devising a playwritting practice through techniques in improvisational and devised theater. The primary research referenced in this document consists of one full play script, Matriarch, and a plot outline composed in tandem with Professor James Bierman for a play entitled The Rubber Room; additional excerpts from various other manuscripts are meant to be included as case studies. These case studies are requisite to establish development of a style and disciplinary refinement through the Master's Program in Theater Arts at the University of California Santa Cruz between the Winter of 2014 and the Spring of 2015.
