The play’s the thing – help!

Hello fellow bloggers and writers! A quick question perhaps some of you can answer:

Can you recommend a good book on the art of writing plays? Including how to set out stage directions, and such?

This book is actually for hubby, not for me. I haven’t decided to become a playwright, as well!

Or if not a book, maybe a website, or magazine?

Hubs and I both know a little about it from our days working in theatre, but a book would be very useful.

Thanking you in advance.

  1. Hi Karen, I actually did a drama writing course through Oxford uni a couple of years ago and the two course books were “how plays work” by David Edgar and “the art of dramatic writing” by Lajos Egri. The course and these books covered writing plays and script writing in general. Hope this helps x
