Page to Stage narrows the gulf between printed page and performance to make script analysis for production or academic study more effective, efficient, and insightful. This text discusses a method for script analysis based on the idea that plays consist of "organized tension" that involves the audience and organizes their response. It examines the many forms of tension in plays - between actor and character, between the stage and the world of the play, between the present and the past, and between characters - by looking at stage space and time and a wide range of plays from Greek times to the present. Features: Examples of script analysis throughout the book, and two full analyses included as appendices, show how ideas taught in the book may be applied to specific scripts. Diagrams throughout the text illustrate and clarify conceptual relationships that can be difficult to understand. The conciseness of the text makes it ideal as a companion for an anthology of plays.Longman, Stanley Vincent is the author of 'Page and Stage An Approach to Script Analysis', published 2003 under ISBN 9780205378227 and ISBN 0205378226.
