In Words for the Theatre, playwright David Colepursues a course of dramaturgical self-questioning on the part of a playwright, centred on the act of playwriting.
The book's four essays each offer a dramaturgical perspective on a different aspect of the playwright's practice: How does the playwright juggle the transcriptive and prescriptive aspects of their activity? Does the ultimate performance of a playtext in fact represent something to which all writing aspires? Does the playwright's process of withdrawing to create their text echo a similar process in the theatre more widely? Finally, how can the playwright counter theatre's pervasive leaning towards the `mistake' of realism?
Suited to playwrights, teachers, and higher-level students, this volume of essays offers reflections on the questions that confront every playwright, from an author well-versed in supplying words for the theatre.
