Abstract:

While plays are printed works and are therefore certainly able to be read, they don't truly come alive until they are performed, with actors breathing life into the words on the page. After reading this engaging and informative book, young readers may well want to write and perform their own creative works. Happily, how to do just that is spelled out in the book itself. Also included are excerpts from famous and not-so-famous plays-all to educate, entertain, and inspire young readers, including those students who may well be budding playwrights.
