Playwriting in Process : Thinking and Working Theatrically (97 Edition)by Michael Wright
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Playwriting-in-Process was created to provide a resource, a craft-reminder/reinforcer, a stimulus, a self teaching mechanism, and a reference work. The urge which led to its creation came from feelings shared by many dramatic arts educators around the country, that playwriting textbooks in general aren't very useful--or used, for that matter--in the classroom.
Much like athletes and musicians, playwrights must exercise their skills and practice their craft. But how does this translate to the page? Can we exercise the way we think and write? Playwriting-in Process is a hands-on compendium of games and exercises designed to help do just that: stimulate creativity, provide reminders of basic craft skills, and build strong playwrights.
A hands-on compendium of games and activities to help writers stimulate creativity, exercise skills, and practice their craft.
Playwriting-in-Process was created to provide a resource, a craft-reminder/reinforcer, a stimulus, a self teaching mechanism, and a reference work.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 205-206) and index.
