"I am so glad to have handed the torch TO you. You're an articulate, thoughtful, powerful commentator on matters theatrical. Kudos to you for picking the right balls to juggle. See you around the Twitters!"

"Gwydion - Hi.  It's been a while.  Great post.  You make me want to check this out. I spend a lot of time formatting and reformatting.  I think I'm ready for something like this.  Thanks. Richard Young"

"I have Celtx.  It's pretty good.  The thing I'm disappointed in is that, in the play format, it places the character names to the left instead of center.   I want the character name center over the dialogue.  Do…"

John Patrick Bray commented on Gwydion Suilebhan's blog post Refuse to Submit!
"My dissertation is entirely built on the manifesto that playwrights need to create their own development and production opportunities. I attended a Self-Production Panel hosted by The Dramatists' Guild (moderated by Roland Tec), and it is…"

"As a very new and green playwright, my experience with submissions has been very positive. I agree with the sentiment of this article though, and agree in the importance of self production. However, I know I'll find it challenging to not submit…"

Jonathan Norton commented on Gwydion Suilebhan's blog post Refuse to Submit!
"Amen! Preach! I realized very early on that submitting to theaters was a losing battle. And I'm not much interested in contests, most of them are for one acts or 10 minute plays, and do not offer sufficient compensation for travel or housing.…"

Refuse to Submit!

I have a humble (if, on the surface, rather radical) suggestion to make to the playwrights who read my TheatreFace blog: stop submitting your work right now.Okay: that's the attention-getting opener. What I really mean to suggest is that you consider drastically reducing the number of plays you'll submit and the number of places to which you'll submit them. Reducing them, I should say, to as close to zero as you can stomach.There are two reasons for this: one of them practical, one of them…See More

Thank You for Coming

Not long ago, my wife and I attended a performance at a mid-sized (but growing) theater not too far from our home. It's a company we visit fairly frequently, not only because we have dear friends on staff, but also because we admire so much of what they do. We had a fine evening -- the story was well-told, the theater was quite hospitable, and we even won a bottle of wine from a drawing at intermission. Not bad.A few days later -- by which time, given the ordinarily busy run of our lives, the…See More

Home from Humana

So, I've been back from Humana now for several days, and a few days' distance is giving me a new perspective on the experience... as a few days' distance is wont to do for almost everything.

(My posts from the festival, in case you missed them, are here and here.)

One thing that's sticking with me is the…

Doing Humana

In one way, Humana is just like every other conference in the world: there's simply no way to take advantage of every opportunity. Last night I was up till 2am chatting with colleagues, so this morning, after an inadequate amount of sleep, I really had to hustle to make it to breakfast in time. Me, three bites of eggs, a glass or orange juice, and an actor from the cast of HOW WE GOT ON, who was also running late: it was a typical meal.



The food was still barely in my stomach when…
