Playwright Primer

Bravery took hold yesterday and I emailed the Playwright in Residence at the Great Canadian Theatre Company with questions about continuity and turning text into dialogue. Problem is, he hasn't emailed back...and perhaps he won't.

I discovered some notes made several months ago about how to write a play.

What does my character want consciously and unconsciously,

1. key event-inciting incident
2. struggle against forces of life
3. crisis
4. climax
5. resolution

ingratitude and abandonment
