Theater Workshop Testimonials

Acting for Playwrights

"It was great to find how physicality could feed the creative mind for writing. The specifics with my own characters were incredibly helpful."
- Heather Houston, Graduate Student in Playwriting, Boston University

"It made me look at my work from a different perspective and showed me how I could use acting to develop character-driven action."
- John Greiner-Ferris, Graduate Student in Playwriting, Boston University

Writing/Performing Autobiography

"Great! I definitely made connections between creative writing and telling a story onstage. . ."
- Joanna Wright, student, Swarthmore College

Writing Funny

"Amazingly helpful . . . I feel reinvigorated about writing and also how my unique writing fits into the spectrum of comedy. Thank you."
- Ruby Fox, Solo Performer

Writing the 10 Minute Play

"Excellent . . . changed the way I write."
- Al Mangiatti, Teacher/Playwright

Teen Theatre Troupe, Orange MA

"I am Candace Cross, the Children's Librarian at the Wheeler Memorial Library where I work with a group of teenage thespians. So far this group has written three original plays and is working on its fourth. I feel strongly that this group would not have been as successful or lasted as long without the expert input of Jonathan Mirin and Piti Theatre. I have no experience coaching or staging theatre and would not have been able to stick with these projects without the support of Piti Theatre. Since 2011 the longstanding collaboration with Piti Theatre has encouraged the teens and myself."

- Candace Lee Cross, former Children's Librarian, Wheeler Memorial Library, Orange
