The starting point for virtually all theatre is studying the play script, but what does this involve? Interpreting the Play Script: Contemplation and Analysis argues that one type of analysis cannot fit every play, nor does one method suit every theatre artist or collaborative team. The first text to combine traditional and non-traditional models, it gives students a range of tools with which to approach different kinds of performance. Supported by pragmatic questions, practical exercises and sources for further reading, this book will challenge students and theatre practitioners to engage with the play using both analysis and contemplation. It is essential reading for anyone wanting to unlock and more fully understand the performance potential of any play.

"Interpreting the Playscript has a great deal to offer teachers and students interested in analyzing contemporary plays that do not use traditional forms. It is the first book I have seen that devotes significant space to identifying serious methods of analyzing unconventional plays, alongside the most useful methods of traditional script analysis. I have long been looking for just such a text to use in my courses - one that helps to rigorously develop the artist's response to a script." - Shelley Orr, Lecturer, San Diego State University and Past President, Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas "I am convinced that this book will become an important text for studies in play and script analysis. It promises to draw in various levels of students and theatre practitioners because of its unique introduction of inner contemplation via Zen philosophy and practice. It also lays possibly new and interesting groundwork for further exploration into successful script analysis and acting." -- Gail Medford, Professor of Theatre Arts, Bowie State University
