Most stage adaptations are written by someone other than the author of the source material, but this panel will examine the issues and complexities that arise when an author chooses to transition a work from a narrative into a dramatic form. Given the unique aspects of dramatic writing (the economy of expression, the restrictions of time and space, the immediacy of the action, the reliance on dialogue and movement, etc.), what might motivate an author to adapt his or her fictional work and what does the adaption reveal about the original text (as well as the author)? Papers about contemporary writers are particularly welcomed.
