I could not agree with Mr. Turco more. In playwriting, in most cases (there are always exceptions, but few in this regard) the trick of the craft is to say the most with the least words. You're constricted by time--make the most of it. That goes double for comedy.

I sometimes think that we playwrights in the business of playwriting are the poets of observation and psychology writing prose without the burden of being prosaic.

Welcome to our forum.

Best,
