So I've gotten into my head I'm going to write a play. I am pretty much a newbie to the whole process, and even somewhat to stage theater over all. I've never written a play before, nor contemplated it, and have only seen a handful of plays myself; the obligatory school plays and occasional holiday play like A Christmas Carol. Obviously I have some catching up to do!

Anyhow I'm using Scrivener to help me lay out my stage play and that's going fine and well.

1. Do you write the ideal play you want to ultimately see (best case scenario) or must you keep in mind the various resources theater companies may or may not have?

2. In any example formats I've seen thus far (Not just Scrivener), there is no mention of costuming. Is costuming something the playwright has has anything to say about, or is that strictly under the purview of the stage manager/director?
