This paper discusses the parameters of my creative project, which utilizes a staged reading of scenes from John Cariani’s Almost, Maine as a means of investigating the representation of queer individuals and relationships in theatre, film, and television. The first section provides background information on Almost, Maine itself, while the second section explains the details of the project and what to expect on the day of my defense. The next section explains my purpose in developing a project centralized around queer representation, and the last two sections are personal reflections of the both my growth throughout the creative process, and the final product: the performance and talkback.

This creative piece aims to blend theatre writing with my father’s career of professional golf. Research was conducted through interviews, scholarly articles, and conversations between my thesis director and second reader. In the search for information and answers, I found the connection between my written style and personal experiences. This is important to me as a writer and any other aspiring writer, because it helps analyze strengths and create a more impactful story.

This entire creative piece is a testament to pursue writing in the film and theatre industry, and acts as a student’s own personal take on how creative writing can be developed, analyzed, and improved. The scope of this project was to better understand modern writing and playwrights by creating my own piece. The general findings in this project demonstrated the high difficulty that storytelling demands. Specifically, linking dialogue in plays to meaningful character development.

As such, a major conclusion indicates that masterful script writing falls on each character being fully developed so that they may move through scenes and the plot with the proper emotional stakes.
