Welcome to Independence, Kansas

I made it to Independence and I’m settled into my room at the Apple Tree Inn, my home here for the last 23 visits to the William Inge Festival.

Inge Theatre outside daytime


The festivities begin tonight with dinner and a reading of Arthur Kopit’s new play.  Mr. Kopit is the honoree this year, and I’m looking forward to seeing my Inge family again.

A bit of playwriting karma: I’m in the same room I was in in 2006 when I wrote my ten-minute play Ask Me Anything for Tina Howe’s master class.  It took about twenty minutes to write it, and it’s my most-produced work.
