As a dramaturg, I dig deep and conduct extensive research into a play or musical. I delve into every aspect of the work including the time, place, and space of the piece. Historical context is also important, so I include specifics on events and happenings that will inform the actors and production team. There's always more to any story, and I seek out the unusual, the not-so-obvious, and the often hidden realities of people and places. I use macro and micro lenses to create a robust package for the director, actors and production team. My average treatment is approximately 30 pages, but it can be more or less, depending on the director's need and the work. I'd love to work on your project.
