OK ... well, that's my question: is it possible to write a beat sheet for a tragedy? *curious* From what I've seen in the Save the Cat book, all the beat sheets there are for "comedy" stories, "inspirational" stories (e.g. Hunger Games), or "adventure" stories (e.g. - again - Hunger Games). ;)

I've googled "beat sheet tragedy", but couldn't find anything.

Think Godfather if you want a backwards journey, John Yorke’s Into the Woods has a good breakdown on how to do this, at least from memory.
