Quote of the Day

"The fact is, like a lot of British playwrights, I don't make my living from productions of my plays in this country."

-Mark ("Shopping and Fucking") Ravenhill, grateful in the Guardian for the interest he gets on the Continent, since after the London premiere, second productions elsewhere in the country are hard to come by.

To hear him tell it, the British regionals seem to be getting as squeamish as ours!

Although, arguably--do we have things reversed here? More new plays are premiered regionally, it seems. Is New York more squeamish?
