In Progress: [playwrights]

playwrights.jpg

A play about three playwrights trying to write plays. One gets told by a mentor he writes "White People Plays" and sets about writing his "cultural heritage" play - with no idea what that actually means. Another has the worst year of her life and struggles to write a new play that's not just about the worst year of her life - and in doing so, stumbles on a moral quandry. A third faces the challenge of being an older playwright still in the "emerging" category - whatever that means. Comedy and angst and completely non-objective opinions abound.


In Progress: [manatee]
