The Process of Scriptmaking.
The last of four related manuals describing the goals and methods of an established developmental theatre project at the University of Colorado, this manual discusses the processes involved in selecting and adapting scripts for specific audiences. The manual suggests ways to cut longer plays for school audiences, methods for organizing parts of plays around a particular theme, and techniques for making exotic or unintelligible plays clearer to young audiences. In addition to listing a number of plays that have been used successfully with adult, junior high, high school, and elementary school audiences, the manual includes a list of selected scenes from Shakespearean plays that develop the theme of the battle of the sexes and provides a script of cuttings from Shakespearean plays on magic and the supernatural.
