Trill Workshop: Play Like A Human Members Of Denver says
Don’t let your characters turn into caricatures! In this workshop, you’ll learn to play with patience and create grounded characters that will help you make discoveries within the scene. You’ll find the absurdities in truth rather than creating an absurd idea. The workshop also covers using specific object and environmental work to flesh out the world for your audience.

Learn how to build the kind of scenes that make an audience listen as you find the heart of the scene together.
