Andy Serkis Tobit Writer

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Later you’ll want to take a wider point of view, but for now, writing your first draft, it is enough to focus on the job at hand—bring the hero to a point where s/he realizes there is more to the task at hand than first thought.

Forest people think tree people get lost in the detail and miss the fun of discovery along the way. Forest people put off using their left brain for as long as possible. They’d rather start analyzing things after they have a script, not before.

Now I don’t think filling out a form on Rex’s character before I wrote the play would have helped me one iota in that little encounter, nor improved the wonderful performance given by the actor, which is, after all, the bottom line. The actors, more than the script, communicate to the audience, which is why I call my playwriting classes “the art of writing for actors.”

The actor beamed with new confidence, empowered by this sudden insight he had into Rex. We were both happy.

I looked like the most surprised playwright in America and said, “You’re absolutely right! That’s incredible.”
