Prologue – The Building Blocks of Dramatic Writing: Have you read, seen and participated in theatre, but have never thought like a dramatic writer thinks? Join Trevor Rueger of the Alberta Playwrights Network in an intensive which discusses the building blocks of dramatic writing using Hamlet as the source material. Trevor will cover Aristotelean Unities, exposition, conflict/crisis/resolution, comedy, character, structure, as well as the difference between writing for the stage as opposed to other genres (novel, film, short story, poetry.)

Trevor Rueger is an actor, director, playwright and dramaturg with over 25 years in the business. Since 2010 he has been the Executive Director of Alberta Playwrights’ Network, an organization devoted to the development of Alberta Playwrights and their plays. Trevor’s work as an actor and director has been seen on most stages in Calgary and his work as a dramaturg has been seen (or not seen) nationally. He is an ensemble member of Dirty Laundry, Calgary’s improvised soap opera, and also plays the drums.
