ViewPoints: Dude, A Girl Wrote That.

Join us for an insightful ViewPoints pre-show presentation,"Dude, A Girl Wrote That," on Wednesday, November 27 at 6:30 p.m.

When it comes to giving a character his voice, some say we can only write what we know.  Others say anything's possible with imagination and skill.  But just how does a playwright go about creating a character whose voice is about as different from her own as it gets?  In celebration of Wendy MacLeod's "bromance" of THINGS BEING WHAT THEY ARE, join a panel of playwrights who also happen to be women, including Fly Steffens and Gwendolyn Rice, as they tackle character voice: writing for guys, avoiding the pitfalls of stereotype and cliché as they create any character, running plays with actors to "hear" dialogue, devising plays, and more!  Call it the pre-game show.

The ViewPoints presentation is FREE and open to the public. It will take place in the Broadway Theatre Center's  STUDIO THEATRE (first floor).
