The Year of the Playwright?
Mark Lowry of Theatre Jones writes here about local and localish (i.e. Texas-tied) playwrights in the upcoming Dallas / Fort Worth theatre season. My buddy Larry Herold‘s play THE SPORTS PAGE at Stage West gets mention, as does COYOTE at Nouveau 47. We are competing for audiences on one weekend. Somebody’s going to get hurt.
Said buddy L.H. and I led a workshop yesterday at Stage West. We discussed want, need, and urgency in dramatic writing and then monologues. Fourteen people turned out and we hope learned something. At least two things ideally. We then saw a play about Spinoza by David Ives at the theatre. A complicated day.
