Playwriting Picture Post

Playwriting: Picture Post
Written by Lindsay Price

All of these pictures come from the Japan pavilion at Epcot in Disney World. The store at the pavilion is an experience, based on the Mitsukoshi Department Store. I adore wandering through and seeing products that are decidedly not Disney-fied. They are so lovingly weird.

As a writing exercise, take each of these pictures and make them the focus of a monologue or scene. What is the product in the picture? Who is using them? What would the outcome be of using these products? A couple of the pictures have text on them – use the text as the jumping off point for your monologue. And one picture has no English at all – decide what the product is and have someone use it in a scene.
