Script Analysis workshop by Janet Pillai

How does one take a script on to the stage? How does a script become a movie or teledrama? How does one understand the many layers of meanings that a script might hold?

Come get important and penetrating insights in this rare Script Analysis Workshop in Kuala Lumpur by Janet Pillai!  

This workshop will introduce actors, directors and designers to a simple method on how to analyse a written script, using conflict theory. Participants will be able to learn about the historical background of the drama, the main conflict, characters and their needs, theme and the writer’s intentions. The method also is applicable to devising plays from contemporary issues.
