Just as a wheelwright crafts a wheel and a wainwright builds a wagon, a playwright crafts a script. Artisans and craftspersons, playwrights create and build, far more than simply writing a script. True storytellers, they build worlds and characters with their words, creating the base of all theatrical performances.
