Mount Auburn Cemetery
580 Mt Auburn St

Award-winning Patrick Gabridge will lead participants through a two-day (September 15 & 22) playwriting workshop with a focus on writing site-specific plays. Gabridge will talk about his own experiences creating site-specific work for Mount Auburn, for wild spaces in Colorado, as well as for the Old State House in Boston (Blood on the Snow) and lead a discussion on the craft and discipline of writing for specific spaces. Then the group will tour Mount Auburn to discover spots for which they will write their own short plays. On the second Saturday, a small ensemble of professional actors will read the participant’s new short plays in the spaces at Mount Auburn for which they have been created. Gabridge will lead additional discussion around the new drafts and potential revisions, and lead reflections of the group on the joys and challenges of writing plays for specific places.  Limited Enrollment. Preregistration required.
Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
