I was wondering, can I post my noobish play somewhere in here for people to crit? I am a bit self conscious of this since it would be my first play. I have started something, but I plan to trash it in favor of something better.

Go through the list of topics till you come to "Critique My Play" and post it there. It's best to keep the number of pages you post to 10 or less since you take the chance of not having it read if it's longer than that.
I have a template for my play in MS Word, but I was wondering how would incorporate the fact that I will be using cetain mechanisms to mimick real world environmental conditions, into the script?
1.I will have a prop in the background to mimmick the openning of a cave.
2.The costumes of the actors.
3.To conserve space and for a special effect I will have three different events appearing in succession on the stage through the use of illumination.
In other words I have at one point divided the stage into 3 areas that are in darkness, as one lights up to reveal an event, another becomes darkened and so on.
4.Finally I have the effect of light being cast unto the stage in the form of light beams from above to mimmick something like a search light you might see from a helicopter.
Apart from describing what is actually taking place in the story, how does one incorporate the numbered issues in to the script so as not to violate industry manuscript standards?
