Writing about Theater is the only book designed to help students write about theater and drama. It addresses a wide range of types of writing and clarifies for students the connections, as well as the differences, between the play as literature and as performed text. As such, it takes aim at an increasing trend in drama studies to integrate these two perspectives and explains how our understanding of drama is enriched by critical attention to both performance and text. The book offers guidance on a range of writing assignments for theater courses from simple performance reviews and play analyses to advice on theater history research and dramatic theory papers.
