Hey, Teacher! – Addendum

I did have one more question as regards The Children Who Are Our Future…

How do we get the kids plugged into the rest of the theatre world?

Screw the kids… how do we get anyone plugged into the rest of the theatre world?

The Universities aren’t producing New Work… but how are they supposed to have any idea what they should be producing? What’s worth producing? They wait and let the regionals vet scripts for them… which isn’t a bad path given there still only being 24 hours in a day.

Where do YOU go to hear about the fresh and new?
How much money do YOU spend on scripts you’ve never heard of from playwrights you’ve never heard of? (My answer is zero. Honestly.)

No snark intended, I have no idea.

    the only people that buy my plays are people that have never heard of me. sometimes i get emails from kids who bought my plays and read them. It’s kind of a great feeling when it happens.
