Playwriting with Tony Meneses
Playwright Tony Meneses touched the hearts of Two River audiences with his plays Guadalupe in the Guest Room and The Women of Padilla. In connection with his latest TRT world premiere, The Hombres, Tony will share insights into how he writes characters we fall in love with—people who are strong and vulnerable at the same time. The class will focus on how to develop and give full life to even the smallest characters—including offstage ones!—and how to build a community around your protagonist(s).
Tony is an alum of the Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab, Ars Nova Play Group, the Sundance Institute Playwrights Retreat at Ucross, Playwrights Realm Writing Fellowship, Youngblood, and has been previously developed at the LARK Playwrights’ Week, the Berkeley Rep Ground Floor, the WildWind Performance Lab, and the Denver Center New Play Summit.
