Whether who took such copious notes know any Mure today about How to Wilu a play than they did yesterday an Moon is another question. J a person May be a great poet Afine writer and yet Boa lamentable failure a a playwright should he turn hit self to that work declared prof. Mathews. One has to master the fundamentals of play making and they Are much the same whether in Shakespeare. Ibsen. Pinero or Belasco before one can undertake to turn out the finished product. To reverse an old saying a play is not born it is made. In Short Ore must learn the Craft of play making the same As one learns the fundamentals of ? Arete ring or bricklaying. The object of a play to be Success Ful. Must be first last and always to please the audience. Victor Hugo declared an audience to be a crowd made it of three element the crowd standing for action the women. Asking for passion and senti ment the thinkers demanding Char Acter and purpose. The crowd is the largest element in the parlance of the Day. It wants something doing All the time. By action i do not mean physical action loud shouting or noise but conflict of movement of purpose among the characters in the play. Bernsteins play the thief a is an example of action in spoken words the second act being made up almost wholly of a conversation be tween the husband and wife in every moment of which there is something doing a play must Deal with a human will and it must be self contained. The elder Dumas was asked once How to write a play und replied by dear sir. It is very simple perfectly simple. The first act must be Clear the last Short and All of the acts interesting prof. Mathews cited Shakespeare s Richard Iii. As one of the bards poorest literary efforts and yet one of Hia most successful plays simply be cause of the dominating character of Richard and Antony and Cleopatra As one of the most finished and Beautiful plays in English literature from a literary standpoint and one of the most unsuccessful with the Public. When i go to a play to study it and find that my pulse is not affected in the least i know the reason the hero or the heroine has no mind of his own there is nothing doing in other words said prof. Mathews. That is the difference Between Rich Ard and Marc Antony the former is All action and the latter All irresolute Ness. Shakespeare at his Best was a master of exposition. He was the be Lasco of his time. A playwright to be successful must write for the taste of his time. To properly appreciate greek drama or the Ells Bethean drams one most transpose one s consciousness to the period in which the plays were written and Endeavor to sense the conditions under which the dramas or comedies were written and presented. In other words the dramas of another age cannot be judged by the standards of this moment. The modern theater expects representation that s Why Belasco succeeds. A play must be full of the unexpected and the unexpected when it happens new Monarch of seas is Steamer titanic will carry 5.000 persons i / j \ i j Only the other Day the Lusitania and the Mauretania a were the world wonder Sisters of the briny deep.
