After reading this, you begin to understand why some plays work and others don't,
This review is from: Playwriting: The Structure of Action (Paperback)
I find this book a good read, which through careful use of good examples and clear explanations, exposes the structures and links that develop, create and enliven plays. You sort of knew it all before, but not in such a coherent way. As someone who has slipped into theatrical and now film production simply because of an enthusiasm to make ideas that came into my head a shared tangible experience, this new knowledge is really useful. Its not written as a "how to" book, but gives you some of the key building blocks/bullet points to keep in mind. Definitely a book worth having if you are involved in theatre or film in any way.
