Books We Want to Read #5: Theatre & Film

If all literature is a three-way conversation among the idea or object, the writer and the reader, then a brilliant script is that conversation rendered pure. Stripped of descriptive passages, writerly asides or any of the other sidebar effects of other forms of prose or poetry, a script takes us to the root of humanity and civilization: language exchanged between people. A play itself, with its audience breathing the same air as the performers, has a level of reality that no other entertainment medium can approach. We believe in great plays and in reading great movies as well. Our editions are designed for the actor: large fonts and an open design made so that lines can be glimpsed quickly. We want to read your script. After all, they’re the stuff that dreams are made of.
