Thoughts on Playwriting, from critic Robert Hurwitt

September 3, 2013

I quote here from Robert Hurwitt’s review of Adam Peck’s “Bonnie & Clyde” (published in SF Chronicle 9/3/13), currently in performance by the Shotgun Players in Berkeley CA. These words deserve the attention of anyone who considers himself a playwright, especially me, in the context of my play-in-draft “Articles of War”:

“The play is no more true to the facts than the movie, but many of the “facts” remain in dispute anyway. . . . But the play is less an attempt to retell history or legend than a meditation on the underlying humanity of these figures, in words and movement.”
