I had a very interesting playwright experience last night. Horse Trade Theatre Group is interested in my play, Geography. In considering new plays, they have their apprentice company, The Drafts, read the first 30 minutes or so. I had exactly nothing to do with the process- I didn't know the actors, and I only knew the production coordinator via email. It was almost like going to hear someone else's work.
So my boyfriend Tom, Joan Liman (a student of mine) and I went to Under St. Marks last night to hear 25 minutes of my play and another. The actors did very well. The script sounded pretty good. And now I get to do what playwrights do much of the time- wait to hear.
