The Playwrights' Center
January 10, 2011
The Playwrights' Center is in the business of saving the American theatre--from endless seasons of classic plays, most often interpreted respectfully... This is the place where new plays are created--and they are created in a manner entirely respectful to the artists at hand. I feel lucky to have the Center in my life and in my professional career. I am supported by the incredible staff, inspired by the work of other playwrights, and motivated to keep writing for the American theatre in hopes that it can be the place where we all go to be infused with ideas and questions and exciting images and complexity.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Every play I've written has been workshopped here.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make more of them--put branches in other American cities, but decidely not New York City or Los Angeles. Maybe Austin and Seattle--smaller places, where writers can make lives.
Client Served & I am a core member of the Playwrights' Center.
