iO and Second City

Monday, Sep. 2nd, 1:00pm to 4:00pm at Hideout Theatre (Downstairs)

Workshop Details

Scott Adsit is offering an advanced workshop concentrating on relationship scenes, character motivations and the often elusive Purpose Of The Scene. What is keeping you from advancing the scene? Why aren't your characters connecting? Why don't your scenes have structure? Why did you spend years getting a Liberal Arts degree when this is all you ever wanted to do? All will be answered.
