Kentucky playwrights dealt with closed theatre doors in many ways, but most of them brought their wares to the internet in one way or another. Writing groups met via Zoom. There were many Zoom readings, performances, and workshops. All of this I am glad and grateful for. It allowed theatre artists to remain connected to theatre and to other theatre artists; a lot of it may not have looked or felt like traditional theatre, but theatre happened just the same. If you’ve participated in anything online in the last year, I hope you’ve allowed it to feed your artistic soul as I have.
