9780130274168: Writing Your First Play

Concentrating on clearly stated fundamental principles, this brief but efficient reference guide takes writers, step-by-step, to the completion of their first play. A practical workbook, it covers everything from selecting an idea to doing critical revision—and how to avoid the frustrating errors that typically plague first time playwrights. Chapter topics include situation and story, characters, play structure, keys to holding an audience, dialogue, stage movement, and theme. Exercises throughout the book focus on the playwright and the play in progress, allowing readers to better assess their own drafts. For individuals and community writers groups—even those with little theatre-going experience, as they pen their first one-act or full-length naturalistic drama.
