How To Write for the American Theater

Title says it all. Thanks to one of my new favorite blogs, Threat Quality Press, for this handy chart. Just click on the image if you'd like to actually -- you know -- study this.




Also, a big shout out to a discerning and uncompromising playwright who has charted her own way as writer: Lynn Nottage. Word's out today that the Pulitzer Prize for Drama has gone to her, for her play Ruined.

Good read.
