You should have an invitation to the blog in your email; please let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Act One: Today I gave you the syllabus and the Standard American Format style guide, which will be your de facto textbook for this course. We read the play “No Skronking,” which has the three essential elements of any one-act play:

1. A dramatic question (which is answered by the end of the play)

2. Conflict

3. A physical/visual element. Often a visual element is closely tied to the conflict — for example, the “No Skronking” sign.

I’m looking to see some plays created that are stageworthy — let’s get started!

BatCat: We will be discussing Batch 3 on Friday and will also be compiling a finalist list. Please be ready.
