The Audience Issue

This edition of The Dramatist explores the relationship between the audience and the author. Dramatists discuss when, how, and what they think about the audience. Gab Cody moderates a Roundtable on Immersive theatre and Isaac Oliver leads a conversation on Audience Issues, while Tina Howe offers a Benediction to her audiences. Additionally, Kia Corthron discusses the price of a theatre ticket. Also in this edition, Itamar Moses answers Ten Questions about his writing process, Adam Gwon shares some of his creative Inspiration, Charles Fuller discusses The Craft, and Michael Weller explains "Why I Joined the Guild."

THE DRAMATIST is made possible by funding from the Council of the Dramatists Guild of America, a generous gift from the JOHN LOGAN FOUNDATION through a grant from the Dramatists Guild Foundation, and contributions from Guild members LIKE YOU.
