Playwrights' Perspectives

Playwright's Perspective: The Treasurer

Before our final workshop of “The Treasurer”, I board a bus to visit my grandmother. I’ve been readying the play for production, but she does not know it exists. Late at night, toiling over her favorite phrases, a fact starts bobbing: I’ve given much more time to this play than to her.

Essay

From the Artistic Director: The Treasurer

There is a reason these amazing actors and this peerless director have been so committed to this play for so long. It is a play of exceptional beauty, wisdom, and originality. I am so proud to present it to you.

Notes on Max Posner

I usually do everything I can to avoid referencing Chekhov. But as I search for a way to write about the wry, fragile, existentially troubled world of Max Posner’s plays, I find the comparison unavoidable.

Essay

Backstory: "Life as It Really Is"
