Study Focuses on the Care and Feeding of Playwrights – NYTimes.com

14 Jan

There’s some great discussion in the blogosphere regarding this:

Study Focuses on the Care and Feeding of Playwrights – NYTimes.com.

Curious: That NY Times headline could just as well substitute “Giant Pandas” for “Playwrights”… and the playwright-in-residence solution parallels the zoo or conservation park.

The same logic pertains: the problem for both endangered species (playwrights and pandas) is that the environment to which they’re adapted has changed and no longer supports them. Pandas can’t do much about it but maybe playwrights can. Form companies. Self-publish.

Or maybe it’s time to find the other door in the wall.  Maybe I”ll write fantasy novels or work for a video game company designing games for teenage girls where they don’t have to blow up the world in a muscle suit to have an absorbing adventure.  Any other suggestions?
