The term ‘playwright’ describes not only one who writes a play, but one who ‘crafts’ a ‘drama’. A wright is a maker, a creator — one who constructs something. In Dramatic Psychological Storytelling (DPS), we focus on dramatis, meaning ‘to express’ the story, ‘your story’/‘our story’ by reflecting on an incident, crisis, adventure, circumstance or disturbance.
