Writing a script

Here is an example of the script from the Godfather
The blinds are closed, and so the room is dark, and with
patterned shadows.  We are watching BONASERA over the
shoulder of DON CORLEONE.  TOM HAGEN sits near a small
table, examining some paperwork, and SONNY CORLEONE stands
impatiently by the window nearest his father, sipping from a
glass of wine.  We can HEAR music, and the laughter and
voices of many people outside.

   Bonasera, we know each other for
   years, but this is the first time
   you come to me for help.  I don't
   remember the last time you invited
   me to your house for coffee...even
   though our wives are friends.

   What do you want of me?  I'll give
   you anything you want, but do what
   I ask!

   And what is that Bonasera?

BONASERA whispers into the DON's ear.

   No.  You ask for too much.

   I ask for Justice.

   The Court gave you justice.

   An eye for an eye!

   But your daughter is still alive.

   Then make them suffer as she
   suffers.  How much shall I pay you.

Both HAGEN and SONNY react.

   You never think to protect yourself
   with real friends.  You think it's
   enough to be an American.  All
   right, the Police protects you,
   there are Courts of Law, so you
   don't need a friend like me.
   But now you come to me and say Don
   Corleone, you must give me justice.
   And you don't ask in respect or
   friendship.  And you don't think to
   call me Godfather; instead you come
   to my house on the day my daughter
   is to be married and you ask me to
   do murder...for money.

   America has been good to me...

   Then take the justice from the
   judge, the bitter with the sweet,
   Bonasera.  But if you come to me
   with your friendship, your loyalty,
   then your enemies become my enemies,
   and then, believe me, they would
   fear you...

Slowly, Bonasera bows his head and murmurs.

   Be my friend.

   Good.  From me you'll get Justice.


   Some day, and that day may never
   come, I would like to call upon you
   to do me a service in return.

Today, my dear students I am calling upon you do me a service:

I would like you to start writing a SCRIPT.  Try to use as much vocabulary as you can from the unit we are doing.  The idea is that you would be able to present a play selecting the best scripts of the group.  

Be sure that before you write your script you have to:

1.  Write the plot.  (in few words describe what is the problem and which solution was given)

2.  Write the characters.  (After each character write a short description of what their role is and how they look like)

3.  Write the setting, or settings.  (Where and when does your story take place.  Describe the place, and how are you going to let the audience know about the time, if you consider it important)

4.  Start to write your SCRIPT.  Be sure to write the Stage directions, and the dialogues that take place.  Do not make it too long.

5.  Post these parts into your blog.

After you finish, based on your classmates proposals, we will bring your script to a live show.  Just like the one you just read is shown in the following video (starting in minute 1:35):
