Christian Theatre Scripts

critically-acclaimed dramas by Sandy Boikian

critiquing service for writers

Why should you trust Christian Theatre Script’s owner Sandy Boikian with your beloved script or manuscript?

Not only has she written dozens of sketches and nineteen full-length, published plays, but her first three screenplays have all been made into feature films.

Sandy’s thorough and solid feedback will not only help you improve your current script or manuscript, but give you the tools to strengthen your future works as well. You will receive an in-depth, positive, and honest critique (which is her responsibility).

How it works:

Simply email your manuscript in a WORD document to christiantheatrescripts@gmail.com. This format allows Sandy to make color-coded notes DIRECTLY into the document. (No PDFs, unless you are requesting an overall assessment only.)

You decide if you’d prefer a page-by-page critique, or an overall assessment. An overall assessment is 1-2 pages that will include general feedback, point out recurring strengths and weaknesses, and provide insight into aspects of your writing that may be interfering with your storytelling.

Sandy will get back to you to let you know when the job will be done. (The average time is 4-14 days, depending on her workload.)
