Guest teaching at CUNY Hostos College
CUNY Hostos theater professor Angel Morales directed a production of "Song of Extinction"at the college last year. I was able to meet him, his actors, his colleagues and his audience through a series of events planned around my play being named Book-of-the-Semester, and was very impressed with him. So when he asked me to come and guest teach a playwriting unit to his theater class in April, I was glad to do it. I talked with his students about how a playwright begins to think about how to write a play -- about goals and obstacles, characters, a sense of place, and story structure. It was a lovely morning!
