ABOUT TODAY'S Conversation
This first conversation in our Swimming Lessons series delves into Michael’s writing process, as well as Diana’s dramaturgical process for developing solo shows and is full of creative kick-starters. You’ll hear about how writing prompts and groups led to live readings, how writing became an unexpected and invaluable part of Michael’s post stroke journey, and how two simple feedback questions unearthed the core of what would become A LESSON IN SWIMMING.
