I AM NOT A PLAYWRIGHT

I AM NOT A PLAYWRIGHT

There. Now that I’ve got your attention, I should probably inform you that I am probably a playwright. My caring and loving friends and professors keep telling me so. I remain skeptical. In my little life, I’ve started plenty of plays. I have a marvelous routine. I get to page 8 or so, and then I […]

Plays & Pancakes & Prosecco

Yesterday morning, in my very own College Apartment, a new play grew even stronger. On this gross, rainy Monday, my home was aflutter. A Facebook invite went out.

Children’s Theatre: Is It A Vehicle To Approach Change?

To be honest, I am not sure… That’s why I am sitting here, quite honestly uncomfortably, pondering the question. An article on HowlRound sparked this thought process. The Binary Theatre Company in November put on a performance of “The Jester’s Cap” which is a a play aimed at younger audiences, around middle school age. One non-cited internet […]

The Easy Choice

Previously on this blog I have advocated for the consideration of stage managers as theatre artists, citing our creative sensibilities in communicating notes from the rehearsal room, and the influence we can have on the execution of the design elements in a production. I truly believe this, and recognize in myself my own capacity for […]
