Erik Ehn

This article is pretty amazing. It’s a deeply inspiring and thoughtful look at Ehn’s approach to playwriting, and educating future playwrights.

I love this quote in particular, regarding Ehn:

“This decency derives in part from Ehn’s religious beliefs and practice, which start with traditional Roman Catholic teaching but also contain elements of mysticism, post-modernism, and theatrical performance. He sees theater as a kind of service to the community; it’s where playwrights, actors, and audience come together in communion, both to give of themselves and to receive from others. The playwright creates an image, the audience interprets it, and in this shared space both parties offer and accept something profound and perhaps even holy—an intermixing of their personal creative visions.”
