Playwright update: Darian Lindle

Email received from playwright Darian Lindle at 12:22 AM

Wow. So... it's 12:22AM. My play is almost done. I think. Unless it will be like last time when I wrote about 4 plays that all sucked and then woke up again at 4AM to write a new one.

I can't tell if my play will be shitty or not. I guess it will really depend on my teammates tomorrow.

Having the last play is hard. How do I end the show? I keep thinking that it needs to end with a song. Or a dance! I want to keep the energy up so that I can end the show in a way that makes the audience feel good. Like, yay, that was a nice way to spend an evening and $20. As opposed to, well, at least it was air conditioned.

A note to future writers - do not attempt to write at Beth's Diner. It may be open 24 hours, but it is not a cohsive place to get your head together. The music is too loud and the people are kinda stinky. Maybe it's that I've never been there before 2AM before.
