Covers setting, plot, character, dialogue, exposition, and titles, looks at specific plays, and discusses the history and process of writing plays. Review: Gave me the rundown on what playwriting involves. Great for the beginner and also as a reference to go back to. In a nutshell he emphasizes the three major elements over and over in different forms: Actions, Visuals, and Stakes. Emphasis on the technical and the bottom-line of a play: it must hold an audience's attention on stage. How to do that? That's what the book is about. He also gives us an overview into the history of theater and the different schools of playwriting. Clear and entertaining read. Great great book.
