Type of paper: Abstract refereed

Dramaturgical analysis is examined from the viewpoint of the playwright-researcher. Considerations in story adaptation, rehearsal, audience analysis, and performance are discussed from the research perspective. Special attention is given to an analysis of the variation between written script and dramatic presentation and the implications which this has for learning more about theatre as a performance medium. A UTS children's production entitled, Stories from Hans Christian Andersen, is used as the case study on which the observations for this presentation are based.
