I’ve gotten a bit distracted by some real-world stuff and will be back soon with thoughts (also reports on showcases, rewrites and why playwriting is such a drag), but I wanted to plug this post on Scott Walters’ blog. (There are always good things there, so check it out.) He also linked to this, which I want to respond to, as well.
But, in short, I agree. The complaints are obvious and manifold. The solutions are trickier, stickier and harder to come by. But that’s where the conversation should head.
