The playwright's approach is just surprising because it does not follow jotting a common path, creating the drama on stage.

I.E: she follows NOT common ways to create a drama. Therefore, the drama itself is astonishing to the spectator.

Hope this helps

The used approach is to completely overhaul the past drama, embracing new experimental paths.

So you are not going to experiment with anything here: when you experiment something you search new avenue but based on the old ones, to search for new results.

Here, instead, there is a jotting of the old for the new.

Hope this hleps
