Theatre Bay Area Chatterbox

OF: 11 Finale

Opportunities to do self-productions in empty spaces.

Playwright: It's an AD prerogative to accept or reject a play, but sometimes they don't have a good answer for why they do. Which leads me to question of how plays are really selected?

AD: I don't have the time or staff to read plays. I pick people. It's about people. I invest deeply in artists.

It's 2 p.m., have to stop.

Please keep checking our site within the next few days for video and audio. And, I'll post some updates on video/audio progress.

And, I'd love to hear your comments on the liveblogging and what you've read here. Again, this isn't the most accurate snapshot--this subject has a ton of nuances, so if something written here seems totally off base, it may be because typed words can't capture tone of voice, body language, and I couldn't capture every single word.

That said, Theatre Bay Area plans to continue this conversation at our Annual Conference in May, and I'm hoping to publish more in-depth articles in the magazine.

Thanks for reading.....

Having just returned, sending many kudos to Rebecca Novick for keeping the conversation going in the room, keeping it targeted to goals and action, and helping to get as many voices heard as possible.

thanks so much for doing this. One thought I had in response to the playwright telling the AD: I'd LOVE to meet people like you, but I just can't. And the AD saying: stop by my office...what if we had more gatherings like this aimed at networking, where playwrights and AD's, etc could mingle, maybe discuss more of the issues that came up and meet each other in a non-solicitous/non-threatening environment....

...thanks so much for hosting it! I got a lot out of the day.

Another idea, not mine but SDC's, along the lines of Andrea's comment: a networking evening aimed at pairing dramatists with directors. Morsel of info here.

Directors can be another means of facilitating company / playwright connections. It would be great to have a couple-times-a-year convening like that in the Bay Area.

Some folks also mentioned having more plays online. does a bang-up job of this: every one of their plays is available in excerpt for PDF download. Far from a 10-page excerpt, you get to read most of the play - complete with the important copyright notices. It has many times helped me say 'yes' to a play, either for purchase or performance.
