Essential Dramaturgy: The Mindset and Skillset

The purpose of this book is to introduce a new way to consider dramaturgy and to offer a critical introduction to both its point of view and its practice. The book explores the mindset that guides the work of the dramaturg and recognises the important role of the dramaturg in the theatre. Using the classical modes of working with theatre texts, this book provides practical guidance for beginning dramaturgs.
