Last year @thepatrickmac wrote and performed the critically acclaimed solo show Sinister Kid and directed the highly regarded one woman show God Girl. Now he’d like to help you create the story you need to tell. In this six week session you you will learn how to write and perform your very own solo show. It will be a process that is as rewarding as it is difficult. We will be vulnerable, find light in the darkness, streamline a usually complicated story and reveal truths about the human condition that can only be touched on in the art of the solo show.
