Editorial Reviews

Review

- Foreward by Mead Hunter, AKS Theater Projects, L.A.

A fascinating and movingly honest look into several individual processes of playwriting, from the first kernel of dream state inspiration to the painstaking details of rewriting a final draft. More of an inside look into coaching sessions rather than our standard idea of a more rigid class, the book does indeed demystify the art of playwriting with revelations of the very individual progress down a creative road it is - albeit with helpful sign posts along the way.

- Morgan Jenness, Creative Consultant, Abrams Artists Agency

This book is an invaluable tool for anyone who seeks to understandint he secret that is playwrighting.

- Lee Blessing

This book is like an archeological dig: it reveals much of what usually remains buried about the most personal aspects of the act of writing. The eight playwrights in this book open up their processes to the reader’s scrutiny and in doing so, they provide a guide of sorts to the reader’s own trajectory.

A terrific addition to the literature on writing!

- Moisés Kaufman, Writer - Director, Tectonic Theater Project

This is a one-of-a-kind wonder of a book on the writer's complex,emotional process of writing a play. Deep inside you'll discover not only the unique path each writer takes to dramatically express their theatrical ideas, but you're privy to an assessment of that process by one our country's most important scholars in the theatre -- Michael Wright.

- Gary Garrison

From the Back Cover

There are any number of books on playwrighting which focus on the elements of a play, dramatic structure, character, etc., but this book by Michael Wright is unique in that it uncovers the various and often different processes that practicing playwrights use in wriitng and rewriting their plays. From the various forms of inspiration, overcoming writing blocks, revising a manuscript, etc., this book provides the playwright with models to follow, new techniques to explore, or even mere confirmation in the many ways that playwrights tackle the tasks of creating a play. The book is useful for courses in advanced playwrighting as well as for the practicing playwright who wants to understand their own processes as well as those of their fellow playwrights.
