I’m on the road to Kansas City, Kansas — Olathe, actually — for the Midwest Dramatists Conference 2023. This will be our first meeting since 2019 due to the pandemic, and it will be a reunion of sorts: the invitees are all alums of the previous conferences. I’m taking my play “Forgive Us Our Debts,” a short play about a young man working for a collection agency. But I’m really looking forward to being together with some of the best playwrights that I know.
American Airlines had to change my flight because of severe weather forecast for tomorrow in and around Dallas, so they re-routed me through Charlotte. But I’m still getting in about the same time.
