I wrote a big new essay about the history of play publishing for Rachel Kauder Nalebuff, the editorial mind behind the new play publishing project 3-Hole Press. It covers the history of Play A Journal of Plays, Paula Vogel’s teaching, Bonnie Marranca’s publishing at PAJ, John Cage, Gertrude Stein, Fluxus, and actors living in pageant wagons. 3-Hole’s site is just about to launch, but the essay is ready for your sneak-previewing and pdf-ing pleasure.
