This subject explores the analysis of scripts that are used in television and film and in text-based live stage performances. Taking account of the needs of actors, of television producers, and of stage and screen designers, the subject develops an understanding that informs the way that practitioners engage with script in the context of the history of performance and production. Consideration is given to the historical and cultural context of various kinds of script; the bearing of technological change on the way script is understood; genre and form; narrative and plot analysis; linguistic analysis; interpreting stage directions; and identification of main themes.
