Scott Heist’s handsome photo of the play reading process.  Everyone was very kind.  It is true that you invite your closest and most critically adept friends to come and listen to the script being read so that they can tell you what’s wrong with it—and what they liked.  But it’s what’s wrong, what needs to be done, that is most in our minds.  Twenty Four hours later, I’m feeling a little better.
