Abstract

The purpose of this writing is to show through practical example a method of adapting a novel of length into a script which could be presented in contemporary performance with the resultant script being of such a length as to be playable. Before continuing, the author would first like to define "a novel of length" as being any novel which is over three hundred pages of written script. Secondly, the author would like to define "playable length' as a script which does not lose retentive power. The subject matter of the writing greatly controls the length of the script.
