... 215 Dramatic Literature + 413 Playscript Analysis

summer 2006. Not yet. I am not sure that I will be writing new course in playwrighting. For several reasons:

I myself is not writing plays anymore.

Second, your learn (art) by yourself and from yourself. By writing. A lot.

And you learn from the masters. That's I do, I teach great dramas.


chekhov.us -- I like Chekhov's plays in English maybe more than in Russian. Because writer in translation gets lost and playwright (in Chekhov) becomes more visible. To see "new drama" in 3 Sisters is easy in foreign language, language you do not know. (Language as in Atistotle's Poetic).

Plot & Story
