Oh, lostsocks! I feel your pain... Fuck them, indeed!
I, myself, have recently wasted hours of my time constantly checking and re-checking a theatre's website waiting for my play to be announced...surely, they just forgot to e-mail me. It's a sad sight, I'm sure...thankfully I can't see me.
Keep your pecker up! (That's what my British Mum would say ;) Good times will come.
"Clearly, I should just bite the bullet and write a play about Tina, the last lesbian-muslim coal miner in liverpool and her best friend Audrey, a genderqueer attorney who won't let the fact that she has a penis stop her being the best female lawyer in Britain."
Why the hell not?!! Think of the possibilities! You might have a lot of fun doing it.
