A Play Is What That Thing Is

So, You’re Thinking About Seeing a Play by Abbey Fenbert

Most plays produced are by white men named David because that’s how America is. In discussions about how to change this, some guy will invariably say in a cautionary tone “a play must be judged on its merits alone,” and it’s very awkward for everyone involved because… Yikes, David. Did you think white privilege was a merit-based system?
 “Yikes, David” sums up my feelings about a great many plays/everything.
 Also:
There are like, twelve possible endings to plays, and eight of them are “someone’s pregnant.”
