I read this because, surprise, I'm thinking of writing a play. Not the liveliest writing I've ever read, but excellent information and background on playwriting and structure. The author goes over the history of plays, how they how evolved over time, and how to go and reverse engineer an existing play to understand how its structured. A valuable first introduction. ( )

This is a very good overview of playwriting with examples drawn from a select (but wide-ranging in style and focus) group of well-known and respected plays, including a script analysis of Hedda Gabler. Directed at an audience who are not beginners, it has an academic feel that never talks down to the reader. The examples from the author's own playwriting experiences were interesting and illustrated rather than embarrassing, like I've found them in other writing texts.

This book is a typical craft book, nothing particularly new or different. It was reading this book, however, that I finally figured out what is wrong with most writing craft books. They tend to make statements of "fact" that are "known" by everyone, but which they back up totally by anecdotal evidence, in some cases twisting the anecdotes mercilessly to make them fit the particular fact they are being used for. That being said, this wasn't a bad book, there were some interesting points made, and the exercises were solid. The best part, in my opinion, was the interview with Jose Rivera, who didn't pontificate about the "only" way to write a successful play (which Marsha Norman, unfortunately, did). Rivera did provide some pithy quotes that I will remember and utilize for a long time. ( )

Apparently, there are rules to art. Who knew? In all seriousness though, this book has been an important tool in pretty much anything I've attempted to write, and the lessons learned from it have helped not only with plays, but prose and essays as well. Either within the specific contexts of play writing or on a larger field, this book has made me, and could make any student, a better writer.

A dissapointing how-to on playwriting. While on the one hand Hatcher is engaging and is right-on about some things (like what it means to realize that a play is 2 hours of the audience's life), very often he is didactic and uninspiring. Large portions of the text consist of pointing out how famous plays conform to his interpretation of Aristotle's Poetics (like half a page on the "music" in Glengarry Glen Ross). There is not much practical craft advice; more "see how it is" than "what does this do?" Despite the fair amount of common sense, ultimately his vision is too restrictive for either a beginner playwright (who should be given tools, not rules) or a more experienced one (who will find no new inspiration, unless they've never even heard of the Poetics).

(I admit I am plenty biased in how I think playwrighting should be taught, but hopefully you can gather something from this review.)

The interviews at the back of the book with Lee Blessing, Jose Rivera and Marsha Norman are nice, but not particularly insightful. ( )
