Workshops can be tailor made for each school/organization across a variety of disciplines and approaches. Sessions can range from the myriad of social issues; race, stereotyping, family history, etc., to a variety of theater disciplines; writing, acting, and directing. Classes/sessions can range from 30 to 90 minutes, to a full day of workshops, to a weeks residency. It is generally best to conduct workshops after having presented the play. Sessions can then be linked directly to the content of the show and can provoke more spirited discussion and participation.
