This being the translation/adaptation issue of The Dramatist, I thought it might be interesting to write a bit of a précis about a recent adaptation produced in DC. Before I do, however, I need to preface the précis with a disclaimer: I was involved in the project I’m about to describe. My hope is that learning about what I hope you’ll agree is a fascinating performance will make up for the sin of own-horn-tooting. If not… please forgive me.
