Studying Plays is a comprehensive introduction to understanding plays which examines and explains the key elements of drama such as character, dialogue, plot, action, the body and space, and draws on classic and contemporary plays.
The essential guide to drama for people approaching it for the first time. New to this edition is a discussion of "design-led" text which explains how to read a scripted play while being fully open to the impact of design. A new section on "post-dramatic" text is included to illuminate the best way to approach this difficult area which now forms part of many drama modules. New also is an examination of "in-yer-face" theatre―a re-invention of the writer's theatre which engages with the effects of the "real" and appeals to young people. Exercises throughout the book enable the reader to expand his or her analytical and creative abilities.
