When writing a play do you start off with player and his or her dilemma, or the question of the play and envision the world-stage of the play. How do you begin the play itself? It always starts with some cord struck in me, the irony of Man and the world. But once the thought and the ideas is brewing away in my skull and the players their parts working out their particular curiosities the 'World-stage' comes into mind. I then design the 'World-stage' or at least the layout, imagining and thinking out how it would work out on a live stage, so that I know that it feasible within reason. The Stage is not like movie set where you can use computers and the latest tricks of technology to create some fantastic special effect that defies the laws of nature and all of reality. On the Stage, you work in real time and or bound by the laws of physics armed with innovation and human ability to create the desired scene that adds that touch of flavor of attitude, or reflect some alter sense of reality. You can make suggestions,of imagery, but then you have to allow the audience to impose their own translation of what 'they think you intended'. So the question is, do you as a playwright at least draw out a basic concept of what the 'World-stage' of the players is, and allow them and their reality bounce off the world that you have created, or do you just offer a general description, 'A room with a table and chair.' and leave it at that? What would be some of your approach when writing a play? Gavion E. Chandler~ 'Man is his own devil.'
