But what I really want to do is write : adapting the Mike Leigh Method for writers for the stage
Irvine, Ian Kyle (2008) But what I really want to do is write : adapting the Mike Leigh Method for writers for the stage. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis, comprised of a stage play and exegesis, asks whether the Mike Leigh Method, commonly used by Auteur directors could be adapted to benefit a playwright during the redrafting and development process. I seek to answer this question by examining differing methodologies of drama creation and charting my process as I work to redraft my character driven stage play Deceased Estate through the adaptation and application of the Mike Leigh Method. I contend that Leigh’s method affords a set of honed and proven guidelines that can help the playwright get to the heart of the character driven drama and offer an adapted method template that can be used and furthered by other Playwrights wishing to develop their work in this manner.
