Dear Dramatist: March/April 2019

The Dramatists Guild, from time to time, provides opportunities for its members to publish letters or articles of interest to playwrights and the general theatrical community. However, the Guild does not necessarily endorse the positions taken or the views expressed in such contributions. All such contributions are subject to peer review by The Dramatist Committee and editing by the Guild.

Dear Dramatist, 

I’m sorry. I’m a sappy sentimentalist, and I love rhyme, but only when the message is true and on mark. I reached a high point, I feel, with these few lines that open the eleven o’clock number of my musical-in-process:

No rock, no hill,
There’s no place to stand.
No mountain, no temple,
No feet on solid land.
All our cherished idols
Have perished in the sand.

– From That Emperor’s Fool
