The Subtext: Coronavirus Edition

A special bonus episode features voicemails from playwrights all over the country about this extraordinary historical moment and how they’re faring.

For this bonus episode of the Subtext, our host, Brian James Polak, set up a voicemail for playwrights to call into and talk about how they are coping with the stay-at-home orders and social distance in the time of COVID-19.

Twenty-five playwrights from all over the country called in to share their thoughts about playwriting in  the present as well as the future.
