Why I love theatre technicians.

Having sent out what I believe to be a pretty kick-butt play, I’m now at the hard part: waiting. Waiting to see if anyone else with any pull to put the play onstage thinks it’s remotely as good as I think it is. I used to wonder if writing is what I should be doing,Continue reading “Why I love theatre technicians.”
