Insights on Playwriting from A. R. Gurney

Playwright A. R. Gurney (c) today spoke about his world premiere comedy “Love & Money” at the Westport Country Playhouse’s Sunday symposium following a matinee performance. The conversation with director Mark Lamos (r), who is the Playhouse artistic director, was moderated by David Kennedy, Playhouse associate artistic director. Both Gurney and Lamos said the 80-minute play is a “work in progress.” Running at the Playhouse through Aug. 8, the co-production with New York’s Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre will officially open there in late August. Gurney said he has already made changes since the first Playhouse performance on Tuesday. “This makes it hard for the actors who have memorized their lines and performed them to have to change what they have memorized,” Gurney said.  “This is not unusual with a new play. As the actors perform, you may see something that needs changing. I want to do that. I don’t want anyone else doing the changing.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
