The Blunt Playwright

bluntplaywrightAn Introduction to Playwriting
Clem Martini
“There are no rules. There exists a large body of advice regarding the writing of plays… but in the end, there are no rules—and no policing body to enforce them, even if there were.”
—from the introduction by Clem Martini

The Blunt Playwright by Clem Martini guides introductory students of playwriting through the intricacies of playwriting in a direct, informative, and entertaining fashion. It examines dramatic structure, discusses the creative process, explores the nature of character in dramatic work, provides a number of writing exercises that are useful for generating text, and cites local and international playwrights throughout.
