In our free (inter)Generations program, BETC teaching artists guide students and older adults 50+ as they write short plays. Program participants will read and discuss plays, take part in collaborative interviews and in-class writing exercises, then create new plays inspired by each other’s life stories. Inspired by programs at the New York Theatre Workshop and Storycorps, our (inter)Generations program is led by BETC teaching artists Heather Beasley and Josh Hartwell. The session ends with a plays-in-progress reading of the scripts created by students, featuring BETC actors.
Our Summer 2022 (inter)Gens playwriting program for young and older adults will be a hybrid class!
The class will take place from 3:30-5:30 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays, June 1-June 29, 2022. Our final plays-in-progress readings will be Friday, July 1 at 10 a.m.
We will meet in person on Wednesdays at Golden West Senior Living (1055 Adams Circle, Boulder, CO).
On Mondays, the Golden West residents will meet in person at the residential facility, and the young adults will join us over Zoom during class time.
