Play Structure: My working model

Play Structure: Two Act Stage Play

When I begin to outline, or even think about, a new play, I often create a draft play structure using a large piece of drawing paper. I draw the structure line and use sticky notes to outline scenes and move them about on the line. Curtain lines are very important to me, and I often get the visual of the First Act or Second Act curtain before I get anything else.
