Description

LEARN HOW TO WRITE PLAYS AND HAVE THEM PERFORMED

Writing Plays is the invaluable and comprehensive guide to anyone who wants to write plays and get them performed.

It covers the basics of the theatre, creating and working with characters, writing realistic speech and dialogue, constructing compelling plots and creating a great ending. There are also separate chapters focused on writing for different genres, including pantomimes, musicals, radio and television. And a final section looks at the practicalities of laying out, submitting and staging your play.
