Great Scenes From Women Playwrights
Classic and Contemporary Selections for One to Six ActorsBook - 1995
Now, a unique collection to make students aware of the wide range of drama offered by women playwrights, past and present. This scenebook takes a different approach from other collections of scenes. Instead of Isolated cuttings from a large number of plays, this book presents a number of scenes from each play. Students are given a more comprehensive view of each drama, as well as a better feeling for the playwright's style and message. The scenes range from less than two minutes to ten or more minutes. Students using the book for acting and directing practice may begin with short scenes and move on to longer scenes. Each series of scenes is preceded by an introduction that provides a background on the playwrights and the plays to help in interpreting the roles and scenes. Each scene is also preceded by discussion questions to help students develop characterizations.
