A play is not unlike a house. As dramatists, we imagine the structure, map out the architecture, build the thing from the ground up, filling all those terrifying blank pages with words, words, words that hopefully provide the blueprint for an experience that can enlighten and entertain. Then one day we open the doors and let people in. These folks are our collaborators who flesh out our conception. They bring it to life. They embody it. They’re followed by others, an audience, that gets to move through the many rooms and participate in the story we’re attempting to tell.
