Rama-lama-lama: How to Tell an Unforgettable Story

I just finished my thesis for my MFA and thought it might be helpful to other actors and storytellers.  Here is the abstract:

“Most plays flop.  Why is that? The greatest storytelling teachers have all commented on the importance of balancing structure and surprise.  This thesis will explore the relationship between the two, naming and defining the various types of surprises, illustrating them with examples from theatre, literature and film and discussing how I integrated them into my solo show, I Promise.”
