Praise for Writing for the Stage: A Practical Playwriting Guide
"I haven't seen a more thorough text than Writing for the Stage. The exercises it suggests for stu dent writers are ingenious and.. .of great benefit to anyone trying to develop the skills required to develop character, maintain audience interest and involvement, reveal exposition subtly, create a plausible and aesthetically satisfying plot structure, and so on...."
—David Wagoner, University of Washington
"This book is distinguished and.. .is a superior and useful text because it is honest, very thor ough, step-by-step, and comprehensive. It is wise about the way theatre works today...."
—Richard Kalinoski, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh
