Why is a play a work of living art in a way that a piece of literature is not necessarily, or sometimes necessarily not? How does a story reveal to its author that it must be told on the stage—not in a film or a novel? How do playwrights make the internal lives of their characters available to a live audience? These and many other aspects of being a playwright will be discussed when American Theatre Magazine founder Jim O’Quinn engages in conversation with master American Playwright Martin Sherman, award-winning author of Bent, Rose, The Boy from Oz, Gently Down the Stream, and the screenplays Mrs. Henderson Presents, Alive and Kicking, and Tennessee Williams’ The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone.
