How to write a play and get it produced - a manual for playwrights.
Playwright and former literary manager Tim Fountain guides the budding playwright over the many hurdles involved in getting a play on - from finding a story that only you know, through the detailed construction of the play, and on to the strategies you can use to get it on stage.
- What kind of play do you want to write?
- Where do you get your ideas from?
- How much exposition do you need?
- Where do you find your characters' voices?
- What should you do when you get stuck?
- Where should you send your play?
The book also deals with the actual production: choosing directors, designers and actors, and coping with rehearsals, previews and press nights.
Includes appendixes of vital websites, and contact details for new-writing theatres, agents and publishers.
