Now that you’ve (attempted to) summarized your play in a single page, it’s time to make that summary even shorter. Imagine you are writing the “blurb” for the back of the book - essentially a summary in one or two paragraphs/150-200 words. You need to encapsulate the important aspects of the play without wasting space on unnecessary details. What is this play about? Who are the major players? What is the main action/conflict? Keep in mind that you want to get people interested in your play without spoiling the ending or boring them with inconsequential information. Try to come up with a catchy first sentence. Think about why somebody might want to read this.
Here are two examples pulled from amazon.com (both are too short, but you’ll get the idea):
(BAD Example - boring) from Editorial Reviews: Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s classic works. This play, about two lovers, ends in tragedy because of their quarreling families.
(BETTER Example - enticing) from Editorial Reviews: In a society dominated by religion and bound by ties of strict family loyalty, two teenagers are trapped by their secret love. As a dangerous vendetta spills onto the streets, the young lovers are forced to risk all to be together in Shakespeare’s fast-paced tragedy of thwarted love.
