DRAMATURGY

Caroline is an experienced dramaturg and happy to review both first and subsequent draft stage scripts to help you achieve the final draft.  She offers a read through and face-to-face meeting in which a dramaturgical overview of the script will be given followed by specific questions which are then discussed with you the writer.  Caroline does not provide written reports but instead offers a Q&A discussion with the writer, which  based on experience is so much more useful for the writer to produce a revised script.    If you have a script which you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to contact Caroline at : casummerfield@btinternet.com
