Playwriting Challenge - Maybe a good remote learning option

    I just saw this and found it to be a pretty fun idea. I think I'll try it (since we're on break this week) to see if it might be a good option for my theatre or English classes. Anyone want to join me?

    So I worked on this yesterday and got mine in by the deadline. Turned out as sort of a meta play within a play with a play. It was a fun way to keep my mind occupied on something creative. Here was the list of 'ingredients' that the play had to include:

    Below is your recipe!

    1) An empty store/stadium/theatre

    2) A bottle of hand sanitizer

    3) A virtual dance or duet

    4) A moment of mass panic

    5) A light in the dark

    Extra Credit: flower or flour


    I could definitely see this model working w students, and it is very flexible about content requirements, timeline, how it will presented and evaluated, etc.
