Welcome Zamdrist.

This is the nature of the beast: a collaborative art.

That is not to say that the playwright's intent will be ignored. On the contrary, theatre artists are there to serve the play. It can be served, however, in many different ways. (Both The New York Shakespeare Festival and Franco Zefferelli did very different interpretations of "Much Ado About Nothing", but both served the play exquisitely, honoring its intent.)

You create the play. The other artists will interpret it.
