Gearing up to write the “Play”


So I geared up tonight getting ready to learn how to write a play.. I ended up reading “Major Barbara” by Bernard Shaw..

I wanted to see how he opened his drama’s..

“It is after dinner on a January night, in the library in Lady Britomart Undershaft’s house in Wilton Crescent. A large and comfortable settee is in the middle of the room, upholstered in dark leather. A person sitting on it (it is vacant at present) would have, on his right, Lady Britomart’s writing-table, with the lady herself busy at it; a smaller writing-table behind him on his left; the door behind him on Lady Britomart’s side; and a window with a window-seat directly on his left. Near the window is an armchair.”

Amazing insights now.. Awesome read too  http://drama.eserver.org/plays/modern/major-barbara/
