Linda Escalera Price: I’m a playwright. Guy: Really? How did you end up doing that? LEP: The only thing I can manage to write well is dialogue. Guy: You think that’s good dialogue? LEP: No, not really, but I was just answering — Guy: Would I have seen anything you’ve written? LEP: I really don’t know. Ever seen a play in LA or off-off Broadway or the dozens of the places my work has been produced? If so, you might have seen my short play Welcome to Florida (published by Brooklyn Publishers) or one of my full-length plays like Silent Heroes or Harps & Harmonicas. If you hang out at schools or churches you might have seen one of my children’s plays or a chancel drama or two. Perhaps the cantata Believe. Guy: So, do you make a living as a playwright? LEP: Not a very good living . . . Guy: Yeah, that’s what I thought.
