+Could target plain LaTeX but preference is to use a pre-existing package:
+
+ * dramatist: fairly recent, good docs and reasonably sophisticated.
+ * <http://tug.ctan.org/cgi-bin/ctanPackageInformation.py?id=dramatist>
+ * <http://www.tug.org/texlive/Contents/live/texmf-dist/doc/latex/dramatist/>
+
+ * play: slightly more recent and usable as both class and package had
+ problems getting act/scene etc working
+ * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/play/>
+
+ * plari: Looks old and v. basic (also a class not a package)
+ * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/plari/>
+
+ * drama: old (1996) and no longer updated.
+ * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/frankenstein/unsupported/drama.pdf>
+
+ * xmlplay: specifically for Bosak Shakespeare and uses play
+ * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/xmlplay.html>
+
+Can get many of these on Ubuntu/Debian by installing:
+
+ texlive-humanities
+ texlive-latex-extra
+
+Also relevant for general layout:
+
+ * memoir pacakge.
+ * verse
+
+## Title Pages
+
+Options:
+
+ 1. Get a designer to do hand-crafted images
+ 2. Use latex
+ 3. Combination of both
+
+### Using Latex
+
+See p.107 onwards of memoir class manual. This in turn refers to example title pages that can be found at:
