A new introduction to understanding the process of production dramaturgy. The book provides specific exercises, examples, and models to assist the student or emerging dramaturg in developing the ability to: 1) apply critical methodologies (among them literary theory) to production; 2) better communicate with directors, designers and playwrights within the context of rehearsal and production; the overall goal being to show how a dramaturg can make thoughtful, creative contributions to a production from pre-production, through the rehearsal process. It includes a case study for analysis, Neil Simon s Biloxi Blues.
