I'm finding that there is no shortage of opportunities as a playwright, but there is a shortage on how much money and time can be devoted to getting one's art put on view, especially when so many opportunities offer only free tickets, exposure and a guarantee of making money after they've covered their own fees in exchange for my time and effort. I think there should be a business guide for playwrights called "Pay to Play." There should also be a new rule: producing organizations must pay the playwrights a reasonable amount of money for the use of their work. Period. There's also no shortage of literary managers and theaters willing to have a look at new work, and perhaps those letters of inquiry ought to start flying out post haste. In this case, making the time to do this is the main objective. It's a question of priorities, and with a new baby on the way, I think art needs to move down a few rungs.
