How Plays Work

By David Edgar
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854593719, 228 pages, April 2010


How Plays Work has grown out of David Edgar’s teaching in the University of Birmingham’s MA course in playwriting studies, which he founded twenty years ago. Through historical and modern examples, the book analyzes the basic elements of dramatic structure, action, plot, character, dialogue, and genre.
