Cole vividly depicts both the pleasures and the tensions of playwrights working in company with actors, dramaturgs, and directors. In this revealing book, we see eight playwrights -- who vary widely in age, fame, and dramatic technique -- responding to the questions and dealing with the anxieties of their collaborators. As we watch and listen, and these writers watch and listen, plays come to life.
Filled with anecdotes and insights into the life and work of the playwright. Playwrights in Rehearsal is an eye-opening delight for anyone interested in how theatre is made.
