AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A prolific writer who has changed the way we view theatre. From his evocative The Golden Age through Cosi and Radiance to the Boyce Trilogy we have come to expect the Nowra stage to show us the unexpected. A master of adaptation Nowra talks frankly about his working methods, his fascination with the fall of empires and the effect his childhood accident had on his concerns for language and teaching.

'This title consists of: a short filmed interview (approx 30 mins) with the playwright discussing his plays and writing methods; short "lesson starter" films about each play and about curriculum concerns; accessible and informed commentary; easy to use chapters and menus; teachers notes; the writer reading a passage from one of his plays.

'The writer discusses key literary figures; development of his ideas and themes; motivation of his characters; adaptation of the texts; dramaturgy and staging of his plays; social and historical context of his plays; inspirational sources for his plays; tips for young writers.' (Publisher's blurb)
