Blue Lycaena: Exploring The Process of Writing a One-Act Play
Blue Lycaena: Exploring The Process of Writing a One-Act Play is a detailed accounting of the two-year process of writing a multicultural comedic play. My report explores creating strong female characters, confronting stereotypes, shaping stock characters from Commedia dell’arte, and developing a comedic plot, culminating in a public reading. During the project, I confront my own understanding of white privilege which hindered my attempts to try and connect truthfully with other cultures. This thesis is an inside look at my own creative process, obstacles, and aspirations for Blue Lycaena.
