The Workshop

Characters Ink Playwrights, NYC, in coordination with Town Players of New Canaan, will offer a fun, supportive and constructive workshop to help complete your play in-progress, or begin a compelling story you would like to bring to life for the stage.

The four-session workshop will cover story structure and character development through writing exercises, as well as live readings by trained actors to provide insights into what is working, or what may need more focus.  By design, class size will be limited, ensuring ample personal attention to all participants.

Suzanne’s Credentials

Suzanne is a playwright, performer, producer and classical musician living in NYC. She discovered the joy of creating a character when she was urged by a director to write and perform her own material for a one-woman show. To her amazement, the audience laughed and then cried.

This is how she discovered her passion – touching the hearts of others through her characters and the conflicts they struggle to resolve. Influencers include Wendy Wasserstein, Neil Simon, Beth Henley, Billy Crystal, Smetana and Tchaikovsky.

 

Suzanne has studied playwriting at NYU, the Dramatists Guild Institute and the Playwrights Lab at The Neighborhood Playhouse with Mary H. Baldridge. She is an active member of the Dramatists Guild. Most recently she was selected to participate in the 2020 Kennedy Center Playwriting Intensive, led by Gary Garrison and Gregg Henry.

Her plays have been performed at 13th Street Repertory Theater, the Broadway Bound Theatre Festival, the Quick Center for the Arts, the Chekhov International Play Festival, the Neighborhood Playhouse, Theatre 68, Manhattan Repertory Theatre, and the Sam French Short Play Festival.
