Writing a play, and getting it produced, can be fraught with difficulties. This book is a practical guide to the process of play-writing, from the original inspiration through plotting, structuring, characterization, dialogue and rewriting to the successful realization of the idea. In this revised edition there is a new chapter on stage realism, with quotations from the works of well-known playwrights to illustrate particular points. He gives advice on how to present and market your play, discusses the pros and cons of working with theatre groups, and advises on the rights of an author when a play is in production.
