#playwright & reviews in haiku

May 1, 2016


I'm so very grateful that between 6 productions (3 world premieres), 4 readings and 6 publications, 14 of my plays will be touched by the universe this year. Playwriting can feel like a numbers game sometimes, though I was recently reminded by the community of The Official Playwrights of Facebook that "play publishing/producing are numbers games, and best left to those who love numbers... playwriting is about words & people & feelings... and being obedient to the muse" (thanks Mark Hein!). Whatever the truth may be, at least so far this year, the numbers appear to be angling the right way. Details and ticket links are, gasp, available at jonathanjosephson.com.

Our 10-minute play Chubby Bunny, about two marshmallows that find true love (just before being introduced to a campfire), recieved it's 2nd and 3rd productions in April at high schools in Pasadena, MD and Canstota, SD!



My 10-minute Grandpa and the Gay Rabbi is going to be included in the Alliance of Los Angeles Playwrights' Pride Reading Festival on June 25 at Plummer Park at 1pm. This is the first public performance of the play I'm super excited! The reading is part of West Hollywood's One City, One Pride Festival.
