    Also, this probably means your play is very esoteric, which means you're making it for a very specific audience (the class you're submitting it to). If you post it for an audience that has no idea what the context is (pd) nobody will understand it.

    You have to read plays written after the 1970s to really understand that statement; Blasted, Cloud 9, etc. A lot of contemporary playwrights don't write plays to be read and sometimes they write plays with an intention to make them bad reads. Theater is not supposed to be textual, theater is supposed to be alive. Thus, I write plays that resist being read, all the greats do it.

    To be honest it is pretty straight forward. You have to understand religious studies and basic metaphysical philosophy I suppose to get some of the points. I wasn't trying to write a great play, I just wrote it.

    I'm pretty sure that's completely untrue. If a writer were writing a big-name play, they would try and make it as easy as possible to read or else they would go broke because no director would choose them.

    Also, for your sake, I actually acted out the play for myself, just to see if you were right. It was still shit.

    Famous playwright Dogar retaliates with the stunning wit we find throughout his works.

    I like it Dogar. I wanted to say some stuff about how it was nice you used Gandhi, and spelled the name right and everything, but then people are going to say I'm COPYING Rayne and whoever else appreciated it.

    Anyway, how long did it take you to write? As in, how did you get the idea and develop it?

    I knew I was going to talk to Jesus and Gandhi, how or what we talked about I had no ideas. So I just started writing my entrance and how I wanted a cigarette. Then all a sudden i tought to myself, "what would Jesus do if I couldn't light it," and then it kind of wrote itself. It took about an hour but 40 percent of that was finding quotes that were relevent.
