This gives the author a lot of power to tell a great story and have control over its interpretation. One of my favorite examples of a well written play is “The Farnsworth Invention” by Aaron Sorkin. This play is a fiction interpretation of the battle of inventing television. You have boy genius Philo Farnsworth competing against business mogul David Sarnoff. The story is a race to determine who really invented television. By straying away from historical accuracy, and by utilizing the story telling methods of a play, Sorkin tells a story with two extreme sides that lets the audience decide right from wrong; or in the context of television, light from darkness. Typical theater and most play writers go against breaking there fourth wall. This is where the actors directly talk to the audience. Most people believe this is wrong.

    (pp. 1-40) After reading the first forty pages in Tuesdays with Morrie, I feel that I have obtained a decent character overview of Mitch Albom and Morrie Schwartz. What I have learned so far in this book is that time can change a person. Mitch Albom was once a joyous young student, who was great friends with his dear professor, Morrie. But time changed Mitch. Experiences shaped Mitch to be a much different person; almost unrecognizable to the young man he was in college. When Mitch wrote…
