Getting my play produced, #14: a follow-up letter

Writing a follow-up letter

Trinity Rep in Providence, R.I., requested the full script of “Lessons from Moonshine” based on the query I sent them last July. They asked for the full script in September, and I sent it right away.

I know literary departments are swamped, and I don’t want to bother them. But I included an SASP, which after nine months I haven’t gotten back. So — I figure it’s okay to send a quick follow-up letter.

Re: full script “Lessons from Moonshine” (formerly “In the Spirits of Our God”)


Last September, you sent me a request for the full script of my play “Lessons from Moonshine” (formerly “In the Spirits of Our God”). I know literary departments are usually swamped, but since I didn’t get back the SASP I sent, I’m writing to make sure you got it.

If you didn’t get the full script, and you would still like to see it, please let me know and I will send it again. You can reach me at (e-mail address), (phone number), or at the address above.

Thank you.

What do you think?

Is the letter courteous and polite?  Does it quickly explain why I’m writing without wasting their time?
