So You Want to be a Playwright? by Tim Fountain

Book Description

Written in clear and concise chapters, this book guides the would-be playwright over the many hurdles that must be cleared from finding a 'story that only you know' through the scene-by-scene construction of the play and on to the many strategies that can help to get it on stage. The author raises - and provides answers to - over fifty topics ranging from 'Should you know which theatre you are writing for?' to 'What if you get stuck?' and on to 'Where do you send your script?' The final section deals with actual performance: casting, working with directors, designers and actors, rehearsals and previews. Also included is a directory of theatres and contacts.

Julie Burchill is Away... by Tim Fountain Julie Burchill is Away..., Paperback (June 2002)
