Hi, Zamdrist, welcome to the wonderful world of playwriting. What has made you decide to take it up
Thank you Louisep for your welcome. It was a particular person's story, and specifically their biography that sparked my interest in writing a play. It is one slice of their life that will be the focus of the play but I also intend to introduce the person to the audience also. Very generally speaking it is a love story set in Belle Epoque, Paris, and precisely 1899-1900.
As an afterthought it seemed to me given the play's GLBT theme and its period and setting would find a welcome home in the theater going community. Not much of a leap I'd presume.
I don't know if I'd ever write another play, but this I am passionate about, and I feel needs to be written and hopefully produced. We'll see.
Definitely see as much theater as you can. And read plays.
This is a wonderful idea! I'm going to do that.
Last night (Super Bowl Night) I was rather at a local community theater center helping out by reading people's drafts out loud. It was open to the public and I found the atmosphere welcoming. I am attending one of their plays tonight actually, intend to sign up for membership and partake of their classes.
