Being a Playwright in a Small Town

The inimitable Scott Walters (see his two excellent sites, here and here) linked recently on Twitter to two very interesting posts on being a playwright outside the urban sphere.

Here’s the first, from Laura Axelrod, who talks about how the slower pace buys her time to think.

She follows that post with another, here, about how the land itself — its geography, and sometimes, its destruction — becomes part of the artistic process.  It’s a fascinating piece on how when your environment changes, so do you, and thus, so does your art.
