Script Analysis for Actors, Directors, and Designers applies directly to the experience of theatrical production; students will immediately be able to relate the concepts and procedures they learn to their artistic work. The author's procedural method is detailed and precise. The parts of a play are learned progressively, which fosters an understanding of the concept of artistic unity. Examples are clear and comprehensive. Actors, directors, and designers will benefit from end-of-chapter questions and summaries meant to stimulate their creative process as they engage in production work.
* Postscripts for Action Analysis in each chapter help students understand the main ideas or topics of the chapter so that they can mentally incorporate the details into the principles of Action Analysis newly added to the book.
* Examples from wide selection of historical and modern plays, including Oedipus Rex, Hamlet, Tartuffe, The Wild Duck, The Hairy Ape, A Raisin in the Sun, and Happy Days and Angels in America
* New typographical features help to make the text easier to read, separate dramatic dialogue from textbook material, and help students focus on new words and information.
