Playwright Quotations

A stage play is basically a form of uber-schizophrenia. You split yourself into two minds - one being the protagonist and the other being the antagonist. The playwright also splits himself into two other minds: the mind of the writer and the mind of the audience.
David Mamet

I love what I do, and I love the audience, and I love the fact that I get to do it, and I love, I love our craft very, very, much, and it's a noble craft. We have a responsibility to it, and to the audience, and to the playwright, and to the message. I won't ever care less.
Patti LuPone

Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright's pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.
Maya Angelou

An actor without a playwright is like a hole without a doughnut.
George Jean Nathan

Because theatre is a story-telling art form, we feel entitled to assume that the playwright got there before we got there.
Tom Stoppard
