The Poets 

by Network Playwright, Doug Van Hooser

Post-Reading Discussion Moderator: Resident Playwright, Mary Ruth Clarke

Thomas Willis is being honored for winning a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship. He is supposed to give a reading for the American Poetry Society. But when he arrives he discovers his former roommate and best friend is there with his ex-wife. The ex-best friend confronts him for plagiarizing a mutual friend and poet who committed suicide.

About the First Draft Series

The First Draft Series is an exclusive series of Tuesday-night play readings for and by Network playwrights. These are private, salon-style readings in which playwrights perform the roles and then discuss the plays in a format similar to that used in the Saturday Series. The discussions are moderated by a Resident Playwright or member of the artistic staff.
