What does a successful playscript contain? Stage directions for: Movement Speech Lighting and props I included this. I will include this next time. Stage directions are always in brackets. Stage directions, dialogue and character names all start with a capital letter. Narrator used to give the audience information. No use of ‘said XXXX’. No speech marks. Characters names down left hand side. What will your playscript be about next time? How could you have made you playscript better? Do you prefer writing playscripts or performing them? How did you make your performance a successful one? How did you feel when you had to perform in front of an audience?
