“A story starts with character.”John Gardner
“Feydeau’s one rule of playwriting… Character A: ‘My life is perfect as long as I don’t see Character B.’ Knock Knock. Enter Character B.”John Guare
As a result of taking this seminar the participant will be able to:
“The writer’s characters must stand before us with a wonderful clarity, such continuous clarity that nothing they do strikes us as improbable behavior for just that character, even when the character’s action is, as sometimes happens, something that came as a surprise to the writer himself. We must understand, and the writer before us must understand, more than we know about the character; otherwise neither the writer nor the reader after him could feel confident of the character’s behavior when the character acts freely.”John Gardner
