The Writing Code: A Tutorial to Building Plays with Kids
Jennifer Kokai and Oliver Kokai-Means, presenters
Monday, October 8, 2018 6-6:45 pm (sign in from 5:30-6 pm)
Zombie Thoughts
performance begins at 7 pm
Weber State University Ogden Campus,
Browning Center, Room 210
In this 45 minute workshop, playwrights Jennifer A. Kokai (age 39) and Oliver Kokai-Means (age 11) will offer a roadmap to teachers (and kids!) for collaborating to write plays. We will walk you through the process we used to createZombie Thoughts as a model for working with children in the classroom to construct their own plays. We will discuss how to select a topic that matters to kids, how to brainstorm, how to develop characters, structures, and stories, and how to truly collaborate in a way that gives children ownership but results in a strong play.
