Playwright, Dan Dietz was in town this week for a reading of his new play, The Sandreckoner at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. We all knew Dan down in Austin when he was writing avant garde works of genius which occasionally made their way up here to New York; now he shows up to the big city with an entirely captivating new idea and direction.
"That was . . . good," said the lady behind me to her friend with that sweet note of relief and astonishment one so rarely hears after the public reading of a new play.
It isn't fair to talk too much about scripts in development, but I look forward to seeing where this one goes from here.
