10 reasons why Dramaturgy on Demand works

  1. I don’t work for one Theatre Company, so there is not theatre agenda to adhere to. You get to write the play you want regardless of mandate.
  2. You don’t have to “qualify” there is no criteria to be met to get these services.
  3. You may access these services when it is convenient for you.
  4. The turnaround time is fast. Sometimes theatre companies or development centers take weeks or months (sometimes years or never!) to get back to you. I can quickly give you feedback with a short turnaround time. (Great for grant and submission deadlines.)
  5. I have a great track record. I’m not just any theatre artist who wants to tell you “how to fix your play.”
  6. I inspire and constantly receive great feedback from my artist clients.
  7. I am connected to the professional theatre world and can set up workshops with the best actors in the business.
  8. One of my strengths is that as a professional playwright, I understand what it’s like sitting on the other side of the table or being on the other end of the phone.
  9. As an instructor, with a long history of teaching beginner, intermediate and advanced playwriting classes, I provide tools to emerging playwrights. These help playwrights craft their own unique story or voice.
  10. I am agenda-less. My only agenda is to help the playwright write the best play they can. I won’t ever want to take over or co-author your script. (Yes, we’ve all heard those stories!)
