  1. Nice twist! Playwrights that think they can write a detailed fight scene bother me. But you also forgot to mention in casting, that actors may be cast who do not have the skill level for specific choreography. I much prefer a descriptive narrative of the highlights, so I can design the violence to work with the skill levels I have.
