About the Author

Paul C. Castagno is Professor of Theater at UNC-Wilmington, where he served as founding chair of the Department of Theater. He formerly served as Director and Head of MA programs at the School of Theater at Ohio University, and headed the MFA Playwriting/Dramaturgy programs at the University of Alabama. He teaches playwriting and dramatic literature, directs, and has published books and articles on playwriting and commedia dell'arte.


'The exercises Paul Castagno provides are eminently usable. They're direct, clear, and I'm gonna steal them for any playwriting classroom I'm at the front of in the future. They can be the ax Kafka talked about to break the frozen sea within us, let the writer loose, and demand that he or she let the mind hit the page in some new and yet somehow familiar ways.' -Len Jenkin, Professor of Dramatic Writing, Tisch School of the Arts at NYU
