Hey hey, it’s Turkey Day! Er, Day Before Black Friday-day? Get Drunk With Your In-Laws Day?
Oh – haha – it’s Thanksgiving day. And there is SO much to be thankful for!
So aside from the usual gratitude points like family and friends and food and shelter and chocolate, there are things going on in the playwriting world that merit some LAFPI thanks.
Gender Parity it making progress. Kitty Felde did a nice write up about the DC/VA/MD theater commitment to producing female playwrights, and American Theater Magazine recently shared the list of most produced plays for 2013-14 of which HALF are by women!
This is good news.
Additionally, there are a host of female playwright centered festivals offering opportunities to lady scribes, so there’s really no excuse NOT to be writing, submitting, and submitting some more.
So let’s spend some time in gratitude land this afternoon for all that is good and evolving!
