I have been away so this comment is late. I may have suggested this
before on this list . If so, bear with me. In lieu of thumbscrews....
I expect students to hand in all rough notes whether covered with coffee
and chicken scratches or not and two substantially revised drafts
printed if the student is working on the computer. I don't mark any
paper which does not have these materials attached. Students find that
it is easier to write the paper then reconstruct the rough work for a
paper they have bought.
My other strategy is to give them staging topics - e.g detail with
sketches and a written justification how you would stage this scene and
explain your decisions in the light of an articulate interpretation of
the play. That is easy to consult friends about but hard to buy.
I am in a dept which combines theatre and dramatic literature studies
(and a little radio and television drama as well).
