Every play is different-as is every playwright. When you're shopping around for a play-development program to push your work toward new heights, you want to pick wisely, selecting one with the kind of process that suits your individual needs.
But scoping out development programs can be difficult. How do they actually work? What methods do they use? Are certain programs better for certain types of writers or certain types of plays?
In "Playwriting at Work" and Play Michael Wright answers these questions and many others, giving you the ins and outs on eighteen major programs. Between Wright's discerning insight and interviews with program artistic directors you'll find the collective wisdom you need to determine how each of the eighteen might help you. In addition, Wright's discussions with professional playwrights, dramaturgs, directors, and other participants will show you how members of the industry view the work of play-development programs and how these programs impact the profession itself.
Every playwright is different - as is every play-development program. Let Michael Wright help find out which one is right for you.
