How do you prepare to receive the best possible feedback?
You never want to give your new play, your baby, to someone for feedback without knowing exactly what you’re looking for. Before you hand your work off to someone for feedback, prepare the following questions:
- Why did you write this play?
- Why are you asking for feedback?
- What is the one thing you want to know about your script?
- What problems are you having with your script?
- What do you want an audience to feel about the main character?
- What do you want the audience to remember when they leave?
Answer these questions and you’ll be in good shape to form clear boundaries for your respondent and get tangible, practical, feedback.
