The Origin of Play

I’m currently working on a 10-minute play. I’ve been inspired by directing a short(ish) play for RROAPS, starting to sharply focus on my dissertation (involving playwriting process), and also reading Perfect 10: Writing and Producing the 10-Minute Playby Gary Garrison (who was the excellent respondent for RROAPS a few years ago). They play itself is also inspired by author Joseph Roach’s research in The Player’s Passion: Studies in the Science of Acting (Theater: Theory/Text/Performance)that I’ve been gladly reading as part of one of my doctoral courses in theatre history. »
