Playwrights of the world, unite!

February 11, 2005 at 1:06 pm (Uncategorized)

Two things happened today that interested me as a playwright.

First, Arthur Miller, author of such amazing and critically acclaimed works as “Death of a Salesman” “All My Sons” and “The Creation of the World and Other Business” has passed away at age 89. Heart failure. Although he was a playwright of another time, he has remained one of the most culturally and politically active playwrights of the century. He will be missed.

Second, my newest one act, a creepy psychological play about isolation called “The Cell” has won this year’s Christian Moe Playwriting contest in the one-act play competition! It carries with it a $200 prize, plus more importantly, the prestige of winning a playwriting contest! I was very happy to hear that my work was enjoyed and worthwhile. 🙂

Anon, anon, anon…

    I’ve actually heard of Arthur Miller, so he musta been pretty important, huh?
    You’re doing well lately as a playwrite. That’s encouraging!
