Engelsman, Alan; Dewsnup, Evelyn
Developed with the recognition that many playwrights have theater in their blood (e.g., Eugene O'Neill was the son of a famous actor), the three lessons in this package present, through experience, the fundamentals of dramatic structure. These lessons for the beginning playwright focus on elements of dramatic plot, conflicts, and crisis and resolution. Lessons outline purposes, performance objectives, instructions, activities, and postevaluations. (JM)
