Please say this with me, in your best Neil Young impression: “All we want is to be paid enough to able to write at least part-time. We don’t even care about health insurance or retirement.”
I know. It’s disgusting of us to say such things. I hereby apologize for all playwrights everywhere and for all time.
P.S.: No insult intended to Mr. Young, whose work I very much enjoy.
P.P.S: No insult intended, either, to all critics, some of whose work I very much enjoy.
