What is the definition of a neutral script?
1 Answer | Add Yours
A neutral script is a script that is deliberately vague. Or you might think of it as a blank canvas. The dialogue could fit any number of situations, characters, relationships. Its goal is to force actors to be specific in their on-stage choices, and to get them to make strong choices and to find a way to play them in a way an audience can see. They must first determine a set of given circumstances (where, what, why), and then they must create a character that can live in those circumstances. This is work usually done with a partner, although the character work is a more solitary task. The two actors must also agree on the relationship between the two characters.
