Playwrights be tumblin'.

WHEN YOU HAVE TO SOCIALIZE AFTER OPENING NIGHT

WHEN SOMEONE CRIES AFTER A PERFORMANCE OF YOUR PLAY

I mean … I know the play ends. I wrote it. But  … I forget other people might feel things …

WHEN SOMEONE TRIES TO MANSPLAIN PLAYWRITING AT YOU

WHEN I START TO HEAR THAT ‘SPAINING, MAN - THIS IS WHAT I DO

OPENING NIGHT

Playwright jitters. Can I just have a live feed of the audience reactions from the safety of the production office? Otherwise I need the seat closest to the door. And a bucket.
