Playwriting, Part Two: Avoiding the Theatrical Pitfalls of a Beginning Playwright
By Ryan Winn for the "Tribal College Journal"


Ryan Winn column

I’ve found that most of my fellow writers believe they can write a play. When asked to expound upon the source of their self-confidence, many seem to think that a theater script is a poor man’s version of a screenplay. Simply put, they’ve reduced theater’s complexity to dialogue and parlor trick versions of special effects. While these writers assume that there’s a tried and true process, they know little of the rigors of rehearsing and staging a show. As a theater instructor and production director at College of Menominee Nation (CMN), I’ve had dozens of aspiring playwrights tell me about their forays into the field. Many of them speak of stories that need to be told, but often these would-be playwrights fail to appreciate the necessities of writing a theatrical script. Read more
