Allyn & Bacon
13 Sep 2005
With skills-focused exercises ranging from beginning to advanced levels, Writing for the Stage takes students through the creative process to develop a stageworthy script.
The purpose of Writing for the Stage: A Practical Playwriting Guide is to provide students with a variety of exercises to help develop writing skills for the stage that eventually lead to the creation of a script. Although there is no magic formula—no right or wrong way to create a dramatic work—there are still traditional expectations for plot, conflict, theme, character development, dialogue, etc. that need to be discussed.
