Essays on Nerve

 

Four playwrights write essays on my play Nerve.

Gus Schulenburg, whose came up with this project, writes, "I feel like this kind of deep reading is missing from our discourse, and when it does occur, it's usually lavished on dead people. I want us to talk meaningfully about plays that are being written now."

They started with Nerve, a play written in 2003/04, my thesis play at Columbia for my MFA.  It was workshopped in 2005 and produced in NYC by Packawallop in 2006.  The 8th and 9th productions of the play will take place this fall in London and Los Angeles.  I hope many more will follow.
