We have 45 Inside The Writers’ Room passholders, a mix of ticket buyers, subscribers, donors, teachers, students, and friends who have signed on to observe Wendy MacLeod’s new play take shape. A few of the passholders have agreed to share thoughts with us throughout the process. Here’s our first installment.

In response to our prompt: Why did you sign up for a pass?
I have been working on a play since my mom passed away. I’ve been hoping for something that would help the process, having already tapped out my friends and the library. The Writers’ Room exceeds my expectations. Plus, I have been an Arden subscriber for 4 years; before that we just attended hit or miss—but now we do not miss.
It is going to kill me to miss next week’s rehearsals, but we are off to Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Shaw Festival. Five plays lined up and now with the new insight gained from The Writers’ Room I am looking forward to them more than ever. Unless dates change again, I will see everyone on the 23rd.
Today I will be traipsing around our woodland property in Cape May County looking for the decayed wood prop Maura [Roche, Set Designer] is looking for in the camping scene.
