An advanced playwriting workshop, focused on the use of personal memoirs for the stage. Writing a memoir is a process of adaptation. Memoirists excerpt and re-frame their own lives to make meaning and plot, and highlight or enhance certain aspects of their own personalities to create a character. This independent study looks at the choices that are made when this adaptive process is overlaid with another: inter-genre adaptation from prose to script.
