Although I’ve written about it before, it’s little known that our Publications Committee sets the themes for each issue of The Dramatist. That’s not all they do, but it’s invaluable to the making of this magazine. Sometimes a theme bubbles up organically in meetings. Other times, a theme is brought in by a single committee member, like Tina Howe’s The Audience Issue and Amanda Green’s Reality Check Issue.
