Write The Speech Which Will Be Spoken

You'll note that I'm not spending a lot of time with the playwrights of 14/48. It isn't because their job isn't important, quite to the contrary, their job is just as vital to the success of 14/48 as any other aspect of the show.

It's just that their schedule doesn't really match up with the rest of the team. Think of it, they get their assignments anywhere from 9:30p to 10p the night before the plays are due, when do you think they're doing that work?

By and large, it's in the wee hours of the morning, with a couple of exceptions (writer Scot Auguston famously gets up early in the morning and writes his then).

I managed to catch Heidi Heimarck on her way out the door after the day's first read-through and casting session.
