Write a Theatre Script in 25 Days (& 10 hours)

Write a theatre script in 25 days (& 10 hours) takes the aspiring writer through a step by step process from initial idea to finished first draft. The process leads the writer through units of work covering character creation, the structure of dramatic action, through the synopsis and scene breakdown, and a unique blueprinting of the emotional movements of any play - all as aid in getting that first draft down. The work units are cumulative. There's no theorizing about play writing, no worthy exercising. The writer simply follows through the units, step by step, and in 25 days and 10 hours, there on the desk sits a sketch draft. Alongside the units runs an evolving example of the entire process through which the writer is able to see likely outcomes - from initial sketching to first draft. The process set down here is the first step by step, theatre scripting process and reflects the writer's own method of work. It is a teaching process that has evolved over a long period and is thoroughly road tested. The process has been delivered in a variety of contexts - from professional writer programs, and open access courses, to on line programs
