MEDIA REVIEWS
"Unique in its genre...goes far beyond [a] useful study...recommended enthusiastically....."
-"Choice, April 2002
""New Playwriting Strategies is a lively dramaturgical gesture that not only blows cobwebs off the existing contemporary notions of what constitutes a stageplay, but also chronicles the seismic shift in playwriting over the past two decades in the United States. This language-based approach to playwriting offers a rigorous collection of writing exercises that will challenge playwrights at a formative and advanced stage to discover new creative strategies and forms for theatrical expression.."
-Mark Bly, Chair of the Playwriting Program, Yale School of Drama
"The new school of playwriting needs a new poetics, and Paul Castagno provides it in "New Playwriting Strategies, a text that is lucid, intelligent, and, above all, practical. He offers an insightful analysis of the work of today's most inventive dramatists, creates a"critical vocabulary to illuminate their work, and provides clear and fun excercises. Truly an indispensable book--not just for playwrights, but directors, designers, and critics, as well."
-David Rush, author of "Police Deaf Near Far and Head of Playwriting, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale
