Playwrights' lives take dramatic turn

'Stage Off' one-act plays come to BPA this weekend.
For two and a half hours each Saturday this past winter, Elizabeth Heffron guided budding playwrights into a theatrical mindset.
The ostensible goal for her six-week course, "The Play's the Thing," was for students to emerge with a one-act work that they could submit to Bainbridge Performing Art's Stage Off playwriting competition to be considered for production.
But under Heffron's tutelage, the students discovered that process can be as important as product, and that writing for the stage really is an entirely different "thing."
