Hello, Every One. I just came home from a fabulous DGA meeting with the big guys from NYC. If you haven't joined the Guild you are missing out. Are you a serious playwright? Join the Guild.
I have numerous productions running or licensed to open soon, including next month in Australia. I mention that not to brag (well, a little), but to tell you once more, PUBLISH WITH STAGEPLAYS! I have said this a gazillian times—many of my productions begin right here! They, producers and directors come here first to search for plays. Help yourselves, peeps.
I've been an associate member of the Guild for a year or so and now enjoy receiving their annual Directory guide and periodical Dramatist magazine. The comp tickets are great, since I live a short bus ride from NYC.
Regarding Stageplays, if one hasn't had any productions with a play, is it really wise to publish it? With my case, I found my unsure self continuing to revise plays even after they've been finished. But the main thing is, I've been unable to secure a production! And will prospective directors and those interesting in putting on plays really give a second look at a play that has never been produced from an author they know nothing about?
Thanks for the advice though. I was just curious as to what you might be able to suggest to me.
Paul generally reads all posts here, so I believe he could better answer your publishing question.
I am still making changes in my plays. GUYS, which you might know, has over 30 productions, just last week I made substantial changes before sending it to a theatre already waiting for it. Nothing is ever done, is it?
