About this book

Teerling | Drama Texts, Plays & Screenplays

PG du Plessis

The creative imagination in top gear, that's what you get when you subject a top writer to severe restrictions.  For example, write six divergent one-act plays, each of which has a man and a woman, a rat in a cage, and the same set of sound effects.  This is the task P.G. du Plessis set himself.  The result?  Six facets of existence, from the most gross of horrors to pure rapture of the soul, all poignantly dramatized.  

Of course it is a theatrical experiment, but one which focuses the attention on the elementary building blocks of the drama: powerful dialog, true-to-life characterisation and the most enthralling intrigues.
