From Our Lab:  The Power of Art in Action: Engaged Theatre WCCW Residency by Eva Abram 

When I was invited to participate in the Engaged Theatre Washington Corrections Center for Women (WCCW) residency, learning that a theater-oriented group of people would guide participants through a series of writing exercises that would then be used to create a play, I was, well, curious. More 
From our Studio: Interview with Playwriting Students, Sue McNally and Caitlin Coey

We had a chat with Freehold Playwriting alums, Sue McNally and Caitlin Coey, about their playwriting experience and what they're looking forward to in their upcoming Playwriting class.
What drew you to sign up for Freehold's Playwriting class? 
Sue:  I'd been in a slump with my writing and saw that Freehold was offering Playwriting.  
From our Studio: Almost Magical by Archana Srikanta

I had
my eye on this one for awhile and I did my homework well ahead of time.  Even before Freehold's Rehearsal and Performance class opened for registration this past summer, I had rummaged through the internet picking fragments of information from blog posts by previous students, previous class schedules, previous performance invitations, anything to piece together a mental picture of what it might be like.  More
From Our Studio: Spolin Games and Improv by Gary Schwartz
We'renull excited Gary will be teaching Improv with us this fall with an emphasis on Spolin Games. Gary Schwartz says that "Spolin's philosophy does not stress the intellectual approach, (known and shared information) and instead aims for getting a direct experience (right now) and challenges the player to enter into a state of true play where the mind and body unite to become fully involved in solving the problem, thus accessing the intuition."  To read Gary's full article, go here.
