BETC’s Intergenerational Playwriting Program
Connect across the ages! Meet new people, create new plays, and hear your work performed by amazing artists.
In our free (inter)Generations program, BETC teaching artists guide high school students and older adults 50+ through a nine-week program. In each week’s class, you’ll learn the basic building blocks of scriptwriting and try some in-class writing exercises to generate and hone your words. As part of the creative process, you’ll participate in an intergenerational interview process with a classmate. You’ll use what you learn in those interviews to create a short play inspired by your partner’s life experiences.
Interested in participating in a future (inter)Generations session, or attending a reading of the plays-in-progress? Sign up for updates about BETC’s (inter)Generations program!
