    Default Tips on writing one-person shows

    Hi Everyone,

    Anyone have any tips on writing one-person shows/plays? Or shows and plays in general?


  2. Default

    I have been told to write the ending first before, I find that helpful. That way you can find a way there.

    I found (from my experience) there are two types of solo shows to write.

    Single Character

    Multiple Character

    For me it is the most helpful to figure out WHO I am talking to (for the through line) and then decide if it is single or mult.

    From that point it seems to get a bit simpler as to the structure.

    for me, it helped to write a ton of material, and then find a framework for it to live in later.

    then you rewrite like hell.

    what one person shows are running at the moment? There are at least two right now in the improv/sketch scene that I can think of. Is that about right?
