This review is from: How Plays Work (Nick Hern Books) (Paperback)
This is the best book of its kind that I have read. Rather than being a dry list of rules or confused (but fiercely defended) theories, it gives a very interesting and insightful description of how many techniques are used in different plays. Reading books about writing often leaves me feeling faintly depressed; this one left me feeling inspired.
