Overview

How does a designer harness something as elusive as the human imagination to create a set that will complement and enhance a dramatic production? What steps are involved in making the jump from a script's text to an engaging imaginative stage?

In From Page to Stage, author Rosemary Ingham explores the relationships between text analysis, imagination, and creation. Heavily illustrated with striking examples, the book covers:

  • the who, what, where, how, and (maybe) why of text analysis
  • moving from dramatic text to theatrical event
  • imagination and knowing: what imagination is and how it relates to memory
  • what happens when the designer's imagination meets the script
  • and much more.
Also included are photo/interview essays, in which Ingham ultimately asks the designer "how will your interpretation affect an audience/individual/society intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and politically?"
