Julie lou hoo ,

Great advertising for playwrights

I love listening to new playwrights talk about their work and inspiration for each piece that they write. Having all these different people on the podcast creates a fantastic variety. Each episode is different and you learn something new. Having been a part of these table reads for the Elephant Ears Reading series, its phenomenal fun, as an actor to get to read for a variety of characters.
Robert, you’re a gem 🐘❤️ keep up the good work
