Book Description


Read an interview with Lou Catron!

The one-person play has a long and distinguished history, as well as being (a) one of the most economical forms of theatre and (b) a wonderful showcase for an actor, a playwright, and a director-especially when all three are the same person! Dean of American playwriting texts, Louis Catron offers an outstanding guide for playwrights, actors, and directors who are interested in working in this form. He demonstrates techniques of writing, acting, and directing that encourage the reader to create a personal theatrical experience. Among the special qualities in the book are:


discussions and illustrations of the actor/playwright conundrum
tips for solo play actors, directors, and playwrights
numerous examples of actual solo play scripts.
The book comes complete with exercises for the writer and solid advice for actors and directors.
