Overview

Unique among playwriting manuals, this volume offers readers instruction tested in playwriting workshops and based on interviews with famous dramatists. Quotations from authors such as Edward Albee, Arthur Miller, Marsha Norman, and Wendy Wasserstein, reveal methods concerning every facet of playwriting: developing the initial idea, building good plots, working through successive drafts, and producing a piece that will actually work onstage. Author Buzz McLaughlin also guides readers in such practical matters as script format, arranging readings for completed scripts, contacting agents, joining the Dramatists Guild, and getting a full production.
