Advancing the plot - how to make clear and effective stage plots to minimise confusion and have a great show

A Talk by Beth O'Leary

About this Talk

A clear and accurate stage plot is key to a good advance, a happy and helpful in-house crew and a successful show. In this talk I'll go through how to make a great stage plot and line list and what pitfalls to be aware of. I'll outline how festival line systems work, in as much as they relate to you as a guest engineer, so you know what to keep in mind when advancing for a festival. Everything's in plain English, with real life examples and no fancy drawing software is necessary.
