Is the script so important in a play or theatrical performance? Many people agreed that the script is the life of the soul of a play. The script is so important because play is the art of communicating, particularly communicating the ideas of the creators of the script in a play reality. The ultimate goal of the play is to “humanize ideas.” The play is not a representation of a literary work. The play should show its existence that is different from literary works, or other arts. Many types of script theme you could find online like a man whose wife is in a permanent coma or the tragic fate of lovers. You just need to choose the one that you feel most comfortable playing.
Play cannot be colonized by words. Play language is mise en scene, filling space and time with audio-visual-kinetic. The play must surprise, not lull, the audience. It must remind us about life that is full of danger. The play performance should remind the audience that “tomorrow the sky will collapse”. Of course, the two opinions above cannot be categorized explicitly into “one is truer than the other”, because they both start from different paradigms. That is, the arguments conveyed by the two opinions have logic in each other’s line of thought which seems difficult to dispute if we also stand in the perspective it offers.
But even so, there are similarities between the two opinions that he acknowledges as truth, that the play must start from an idea or ideas, which want to be conveyed to the audience. It is how to convey ideas that cause differences between one director and another director. The different ways of conveying that idea not only lead to the emergence of two different paradigms, namely the script are very important and not important for the play, it also became the cause of the birth of the director with their respective individuality. How to package ideas with certain tendencies of a director, gave birth to a style or directing style that is associated with creativity, and therefore very individual. If a person’s directing style is followed, then the person who follows him can be considered as an imitator or even a plagiarist.
