Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

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?"

Book News Annotation:

Explores the relationships among text analysis, imagination, and creation. Offers practical advice for reading and understanding playscripts and a clear, detailed method for identifying, collecting, and organizing script facts in order to move from text to theatrical event. Includes b&w illustrations as well as photo/interview essays in which designers address the question of how an interpretation will affect an audience emotionally, spiritually, and politically. No index.
