Reworking for the Stage: Adaptation and Revision

This talk is all about making progress on whatever project is currently keeping you up at night. Whether you’re daunted by the task of adapting an existing work for the stage, stuck on the draft between drafts of one of your plays, or maybe both, this talk is for you. Jeremy Llorence, Otterbein University’s playwriting professor, will share personal stories of his creative approaches in adaptation, revision, and the rehearsal process, while providing some of his tools and exercises for taking that net big creative step.


5 – 5:50pm –

A Producer’s Perspective: Q and A with Cleveland Public Theatre’s, Beth Wood

How do you get your foot in the door with a new theater? What are producers looking for? In what ways are the national conversations about new work changing? What’s next? Join Beth Wood, Associate Artistic Director of Cleveland Public Theatre, as she shares her impressions and reflections on over a decade producing new work. Les Hunter, Ohio Regional Representative of the Dramatists Guild of America, will moderate this session.


   Jeremy Llorence is a Black American playwright from Metro-Detroit. His ten-minute, one act and full-length plays have been seen in venues all over the Midwest, including Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Milwaukee, and Chicago. As a writer, he is interested in exploring topics of masculinity and place through both comedy and drama. As a teacher, he is interested helping students find the voices to tell the stories that matter most to them.
   Beth Wood joined the CPT staff in 2007 and is a director, actress, administrator, designer, educator, and theatre technician. As a director of adventurous scripted work, she has been honored as a director of superior achievement by the Cleveland Critics Circle in 2016, 2015, and 2013, and has directed 17 productions, including seven world premieres and eight regional premieres, during her twelve-year tenure at CPT. In addition to her directing work, Beth supports four New Play Development series that invest in outside-themainstream work and the artistic growth of Northeast Ohio creators.
