Overview

Playwriting Master Class: The Personality of Process and the Art of Rewriting / Edition 2


Playwriting Master Class is a book about the process of playwriting for the active playwright, the evolution of the play as the playwright engages with it and the choices the playwright makes in creating the play.

Through the use of a number of case studies of playwrights engaged in writing and rewriting plays, Michael Wright focuses on different individual approaches to their work, fostering their own unique visions and voices as a means of helping the working playwright find her or his own voice.

From the various forms of inspiration, overcoming writing blocks, revising a manuscript, etc., this book provides the playwright with models to follow, new techniques to explore, or even mere confirmation in the many ways that playwrights tackle the tasks of creating a play.
