Getting my play produced, #21: e-mail I sent to Trinity Rep

The e-mail I wrote to the literary manager at Trinity Rep

Thank you for your feedback.  I’m sorry to hear that Trinity Rep isn’t interested in my play, but I appreciate very much your taking some time to give me some comments.  If I rewrite the play I will look at the issues you mention.

And next time I have something I think would suit Trinity Rep, I hope I can send it to you.

At second look, it sounds stiff.  I could relax my writing a little in the next one.  But anyhow, the literary manager wrote back that of course I could send them something next time.

How is this good for me?

So.  The literary manager said they won’t pursue my play any further.  I assume that means she didn’t pass it on to the artistic director, even.  Naturally, I’m disappointed.


She does want to see more of my work.  Which is good.

I was gracious and polite, and considerate of how busy she must be.  Which is good, both because I think that’s how I should treat people, and because I have shown myself to be professional.

It’s a small world out there, ultimately.
