from biblio page:

Francis Hodge Play Directing : Analysis, Communication, Style

Seven Major Areas of Play-Analysis :

1) Given Circumstances, the foundation of the playscript 
    1. Geographical location--the exact place (which includes climate)
      2. Date--year, season, time of day
      3. Economic environment--class level, state of wealth or poverty
      4. Political environment
      5. Social environment
      6. Regious environment 
     They are deeply rooted in Previous Actions and the resulting polar attitude at the beginning of the play
                Previous Actions
                Polar Attitude
2) Dialogue, the Facade of the Playscript :
     Dialogue Is Action ; Dialogue Is in Verse or Prose ; Dialogue Is Inner Language
3) Dramatic Action : the clash of forces in a play--the continuous conflict between characters
       Acting is the how ; action is the what. 
       All action Is Reciprocal : All action forces counter-action, or action in two directions with adjustments in between
     The Divisions of Action : French Scenes
     Finding and Labeling the Action : Use Active Verbs
        A shames ; B ignores ; A pleads ; B softens ; A begs; B rejecys
4) Characters evolve through Actions
5) Ideas
6) Tempos
7) Moods
