Kate Aspergren -- Playwriting: from Page to Stage

Monday, July 16, 2012 - 3:37pm
Do you need to have a background in theatre to write plays? What’s the difference between a playwright and a screenwriter? How is it possible to develop characters and tell a story without passages of description and exposition? Is it up to the playwright to determine who does what and when they do it? How do you decide if the story you want to tell can best be told on stage? Once you write the play, how do you get it produced? Published? Kate Aspengren answers these questions (and more!) in this discussion of the craft of playwriting.
