One play's development
Sometimes it's helpful to read about how one play has developed. I think that this is particularly for plays that tell a religious-based story. How, for instance, does one dramatize the inner life, the prayer and contemplation endemic to a spiritual life? The Rev. Albert J. DeGiacomo who is playwright and member of the Dramatists Guild, but first and foremost as Jesuit priest, is on the spiritual formation staff at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology was approached about writing a spiritual play for the Seminary. His creative process and how he developed his play about Gerard Manley Hopkins into a fully realized readers theatre production is the subject of the article linked below which appeared in Dappled Things.
