I've wrote two before, several months ago, though I was never entirely satisfied with them as a whole. The one I began a fortnight ago was an adaptation of a short story I wrote a while back, which, as it stands, has proven much more formidable when put into play format, with, of course some other minor alterations.

Anyone else? :calm:

For anyone not quite in the know:


A closet drama is a play that is not intended to be performed onstage, but read by a solitary reader or, sometimes, out loud in a small group. A related form, the "closet screenplay," developed during the 20th century.

I had to write a few for my theater practicum, and only one made it to the review. It sort of sputtered out after an improv session where I was playing a gynecologist and my partner was a nun.

I actually have no idea where I have it saved. :/

This might be fun to try to get practice writing.
