Space, Time and Conflict: Writing for Stage Performance - Keith Scales, AEA; AFTRA; SAG 

The novelist’s tools are thought and imagination presented in words, to be read at leisure. The playwright’s tools are actors, interacting with each other and an audience in real time. Common to both forms of expression are plot, character development, and conflict. We will employ the 10-minute play form to demonstrate the fundamentals, challenges and potential of writing for performance.
