Author: Milton E. Polsky

Do you have an idea for a play? A situation or experience from your home or work life? Fantasy? With helpful, clear examples, taken from his own experiences in teaching, directing and playwriting, Milton Polsky shows how to find and shape a dramatic idea and bring it to fruition. In addition to providing many practical exercises, suggestions and tips, he discusses and illustrates with examples from established playwrights “the importance of giving shape to your idea so that what is in your head and heart can be expressed to the fullest.”

To facilitate this creative process, there are “What if?”, “Just for You,” “Playwright's Page” sections; diagrams, journal exercises; and for this revised edition, end of chapter “Suggested Activities for the Classroom” (solo and group); addditional appendices, including one on feedback; and over 50 new photos.

This invaluable and basic guide to writing plays is ideal for teachers, students, camp counselors, community theatre leaders – and for anyone who knows there's a play inside, trying to get out!
