CRN: 7514

Credits: 1

Just as a Shipwright is a builder of Ships, a Wainwright a builder of Wagons, so to a Playwright is a builder of Plays. Plays are carefully and fearfully made. They are constructed is a specific manner. Story Analysis is about the discovery— the uncovering really—of how a play is made and constructed. It answers the question: how does this play work? While examining plot, character, and theme, the course’s main concern is the Cause and Effect leading to Action in a play. This skill is essential for student artists--actors, directors, and playwrights. Each week a new play will be discussed.
