Playwriting

Censorship?

If this is censorship, then I’ve been “censored” by NPR, The New York Times, Runner’s World, Saveur, etc. basically everybody who’s ever edited my material, and they ALL have.

A really interesting read over on Peter Sagal’s blog (who I know from Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and didn’t know he was also a playwright) on what is and what isn’t censorship regarding having one of his plays used as part of a high school test in Texas.

There was a follow up to this situation, which you can read here.

Holy cow! I just realized that the Ten Minute Play Collection his play was taken from, is the same one I’m in! Ten Minute Plays Volume 6 from Actors Theatre of Louisville. My play Paper Thin is included (which you can also find in Theatrefolk’s Ten Minute Play Collection)¬†That makes us distant third cousins, or neighbours once removed or something….
