This introduction to CHOICEWORK from Age to Zodiac Sign is for theatre artists, students and teachers of all levels.

Participants will use CHOICEWORK from Age to Zodiac Sign to discover and investigate the world of the play—the material reality, structure, relationships, patterns and dramaturgical details that shape the story and characters. Through text analysis and dramaturgical digging, participants will gain experience in reading a play on its own terms, and applying this detective work from the first reading of a script to the final rehearsal.
