Sorry, it’s a misleading headline. In fact, the NEA institute for theater writing was transcendent. Director Sasha Anawalt is a genius at casting and directing; she has the cutest, firmest stage manager in Captain Freckles (aka Arianna Sikorski); and the 23 fellows were a smart, creative ensemble. I can’t recommend this program enough. Though I have to say, the pace was grueling. Bravo! Encore!
