Are playwrights whiners?

Perhaps. Do we have a right to be? Perhaps.

Take a look at this quote from an article in the Guardian (UK) by Theresa Rebeck. You can find the entire post HERE.

"Is the American theatre allowing itself to become irrelevant? The problem isn't that playwrights aren't being paid enough. It's that theatres all over America are looking towards New York to tell them what new plays to do. Meanwhile, New York is in thrall to revivals and movie stars."

Of course, I'd love it if every small community theatre in Texas decided to do my plays, but I'm not famous enough. Yet. LOL.

Food for thought...
