Playwriting: A Practical Guide
By

Rating
What makes a story work? Playwriting offers a practical guide to the creation of text for live performance, and contains a wealth of exercises for all individuals and groups involved in making theatre. It can be used in a range of contexts: either as a step-by-step guide to the creation of an individual play, as a handy resource for a teacher or workshop leader, or as a stimulus for the group-devised play. The result of Noel Greig's thirty years' experience as a playwright, actor, director and teacher, Playwriting is the ideal handbook for anyone who engages with playwriting and is ultimately concerned with creating a story and bringing it to life on the stage.
