Do you have an idea for a play? A situation or experience from your home or work life? Fantasy? With helpful, clear examples, taken from his own experiences in teaching, directing and playwriting, Milton Polsky shows how to find and shape a dramatic idea and bring it to fruition. In addition to providing many practical exercises, suggestions and tips, he discusses and illustrates with examples from established playwrights the importance of giving shape to your idea so that what is in your head and heart can be expressed to the fullest. To facilitate this creative process, there are What if?, Just for You, Playwright's Page sections; diagrams, journal exercises; and for this revised edition, end of chapter Suggested Activities for the Classroom (solo and group); addditional appendices, including one on feedback; and over 50 new photos. This invaluable and basic guide to writing plays is ideal for teachers, students, camp counselors, community theatre leaders - and for anyone who knows there's a play inside, trying to get out!

"I ordered a baritone ukulele from your site, and I just wanted to take time out of my day to let you know that your service and products you sell are fantastic. Keep up the good work, and please share this comment with as many people as possible. I know you are more likely to hear when something goes wrong, so here is a huge thank you from a happy customer!"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Received the guitar yesterday afternoon, only 1 day after it shipped UPS ground. It's everything as described and more. Pestered you a couple of times with questions about my order and you were gracious, down to earth, and quick to respond. We can't wait to see our Granddaughter's face when she opens this gift. Would highly recommend your site to anyone."
