It appears that reading plays is what play writing courses and workshops suggest.
I think they are correct. It's one heckuva way to learn a craft by experiencing what
others who are more involved do.
I wonder why this is called an expressionist play.
Beckett and Ionescu at this point with their sparse sets and minimal dialogue. Think, Waiting for Godot, where it's a tree and a couple guys sitting beneath it talking. And I recall seeing a play that was simply a large box on stage with one or two characters. I have no idea who wrote it.
