Experience a play

If you need to write a script, go to see a play at your local community theatre hall. If you go there knowing that you have to write a short play, you’ll pick up lots of useful things that will help when you write your script.

See what special effects (if any) are used, and think about why they and not more complicated effects were chosen. Have a look at how many characters there are in the play (often fewer than you’d expect) and when they’re on or off stage. Check out how the actors move relative to each other on stage, and how much they move.
