What is a favorite memory from this season?

Seeing Dave Harris’ Tambo and Bones at Playwrights Horizons.

What is a great bit of advice about playwriting you’ve given or received?

The best playwriting advice I ever got was from poet Anne Sexton who told me not to go to graduate school to study playwriting (I had gotten into a famous playwriting program) but to make my own way in the world. It was her feeling that I knew deep down what and how to write and to follow my own lights.
