A Postface to “Dear Actor”
Dave Lankford

It’s hard to imagine a negative response to either of your stories #Dear Actor. I think you handled the haters and the encouragers with great patience and elegance. Bravo, #DearPlaywright! As an actor turned playwright/screenwriter I especially conscious of the character and her inner life and hope to craft interesting, multilayered personas for actors to joyfully inhabit. I do think the script serves as a blueprint for what eventually is built by the director using the actors to their fullest potential. I love the bit you wrote about the clues embedded in the language and even the punctuation. It reminds me of the great responsibility we have for every page we write.
