Much of playwriting is invisible work. If one gathers a group of good actors and prompts them to act in a given situation, they can improvise incredible lines and put together amazing scenes. TV shows and performances are based on this phenomenon. However, these scenes are always cut off after a short while, as the actors are neither able to organise these lines in sequences nor are they able to interweave multiple scenes that have meaning as it is not their job. The job behind the words is called dramaturgy. This paper discusses helping, supporting, and giving structure to this invisible but immense job.
