|Staged readings: Great for development. Bad as end product. Borrowed from Berkshire Playwright's Lab|
- Playwrights twiddling their thumbs waiting to get "discovered".
- Theatre purists that refuse to use the internet to display and market their work.
- Theatre companies that don't have a social media presence.
- Artists reluctant to embrace the crazy ideas.
- Staged readings of ten minute plays and one-acts. I mean you could just produce the thing in less time!
- Playwrights still sending out their plays solely in the mail.
- Playwrights that act like dictators of their productions like they aren't happy to get any production that come their way.
- The myth that all good theatre comes from one of the big cities.
- The myth that all good theatre is "non-profit".
These are the things that just get under my skin a bit. Mainly because I seem to live in this world as a playwright. These are the things that are pulling us down. Now we just have to find the ways to build our way back into a working system. Here's hope for the future!
