Hi guys, first-time poster here.

I am currently writing my first play and have it about 90% down on paper. I am really pleased with it. However, one thing that bothers me is the fact that I may have too many scenes. There are 38 scenes in total - but they are all quite short - around 3-4minutes each.

The issue is, it is a true-life piece, that spans about 45-years, so I need to scenes. Maybe there is a way that I can move on from scenes with very simple production?

Can anybody tell me whether this is acceptable?

Thank you.
