Thanks so much for the hard work you and your colleagues put into arranging the Great Plains Theater Conference this year. I was thrilled to be able to attend, and am grateful to everything you, your staff, and the lovely Ellen Struve did to make it possible.
I was really thrilled by the talent and camaraderie of the Nebraska theater folks. The dedication of those who worked so hard on the one-shot performances of Fortinbras and A Walk in the Woods staggered me. It was wonderful to get to meet all these people and see you working together across many boundaries--academic, professional, community theater makers, people of different ages, races, and aesthetic tendencies all collaborating to welcome playwrights from beyond Omaha and to make the conference happen.
I appreciated some of the folks you brought in from the larger world as well--Mac Wellman's courage and precision during the feedback process, Tom Riccio's Subliminal workshop (which gave a much needed reminder of the creative depths from which my plays emerge), and Sibyl Kempton's refreshing openness and energy. And I made so many connections among playwrights from all over the country--some just brief thoughtful exchanges, others I think may develop into lifelong friendships.
Thank you again for your dedication to playwrights and for your effort in making this happen.
all the best,
