"Here is so much more than merely a list of nifty, useful rules. Janet Neipris's extraordinary book overflows with the warmth and affirmation and--dare I say it?--the love that art demands of artists and audiences alike. It is essential reading not only for playwrights but for all people who love good theater. Its keen, personal insights blend seamlessly with practical, hands-on observations that illuminate the elusive challenges confronting creators of dramatic expression from the moment they write 'Act One, Scene 1'."
-Richard Walter, Writing Chair, UCLA Film School
"This book is indispensable for theneophyte; for the veteran playwright, it is an engaging reminder of the challenges, techniques, and occasional exhilarations of our craft. If I were teaching, I would assign it."
-Doug Wright, author of "I Am My Own Wife
"Neipris's book is packed with personal wisdoms and practical insights that will prove invaluable to any playwright."
-Mark Ravenhill, author of "Shopping and F***ing
