Do Drama

Have you ever said, I d love to write a script, but don t know where to start ? Or watched the latest binge-worthy Netflix series and thought you could do better? Or maybe you have one golden gift of an idea that you re itching to write? Do Drama explores the why and how of writing drama not as an instruction manual, but as a lively conversation with one of Britain s most prolific and successful script writers, Lucy Gannon creator of Soldier, Soldier, Peak Practice, Bramwell, and many films, theatre plays and radio dramas. And she didn t write her first play until she was 39. The book provides an encouraging and inspiring roadmap for novice writers, giving practical guidance at every stage in the process, from the first scene to the last, from finding an agent to the commissioning process, from writing dialogue to turning up on set. Not everyone is a writer, and not every writer is a dramatist. But if you observe and detect the games people play, if you have stories to tell, if you question motives yet remain detached, if you are an honest recorder, then maybe you have what it takes. It s not about education, or class, or cleverness, it s about your deep desire to tell stories, to create characters, to explore emotions, finding the humour alongside the pathos. To bring your characters and your stories to life- and maybe, viewed by millions.
