Read “70 Scenes of Halloween.” Note all features that recur throughout the play, and note especially how the play manages to hold our interest (if indeed it does). What is the “content” of this play? Is this a narrative that we are viewing out of sequence, or is it a new narrative each time we read/see it?
Write a play that is 5 or more scenes long – 1 scene per page – that can be read out of order and still be interesting. The play should have one character that occurs in each scene, and one object. There also has to be a murder, an animal, and a celebrity guest star. Note how differences in the order of the play change the “outcome,” but also the set-up, the dramatic arc, etc.
