Join award-winning playwright/actor/director and Fringe Festival veteran TJ Dawe for this two day intensive workshop that will guide you through the process of how to turn your stories and ideas into a solo performance piece. All levels of experience welcome (ages 18 and up).

This is an amazing opportunity to learn from a seasoned professional artist, and to finally get started on that performance piece you’ve been thinking about creating!

The two are now working on One Man Stranger Things. He has a number of published scripts. His show Medicine can be viewed on YouTube in its entirety.
