Writer of Ball State: Gabbi

Gabbi, Theatre Major“As a theater major, I both write and act. I write in theater and I perform in theater. Theater is a form of communication, like writing is, and like traditional papers are. All theater is making an argument…Sometimes in theater it’s more complex because you’re not always using dialogue, or you are using dialogue, but there’s subtext and a character’s not saying what they mean. I think having this basic understanding of how you form an argument really helps me write plays that matter, or understand what plays are saying—what argument an author is making so that, as a performer, I can make that argument too. ”
