To celebrate the centennial year of the Authors League, The Dramatists Guild of America invites you to join us as we unveil archived audio unheard by the public since their initial recording. Over the next year, In the Room will host some of the most celebrated playwrights, composers and lyricists in the American theatre discussing craft while sharing their influences and experiences creating some of their most celebrated work. Currently featured is a session with Tina Howe and Sarah Ruhl, originally recorded in 2007.
In this episode the inimitable Tina Howe brings Sarah’s unique style of poetic language, dynamic stage directions and wide range of mythical characters to discussion of Aristotle, Mac vs. PC, motherhood, weeping coins and working with invisible colleagues. The conversation between Howe and Ruhl taps into real struggles of finding time to write, getting started with a first draft and the extensive process of editing and revisions.
In the Room also features episodes with Stephen Sondheim, David Auburn, Terrence McNally, Doug Wright, Paula Vogel and Arthur Kopit. To view the full lists of episodes visit: http://www.dramatistsguild.com/eventseducation/intheroom.aspx.
