Interesting entry about new writing over at Karl Miller's blog.
Though I do share most of the concerns about the tropes and cliches pointed at there (some of them I'm afraid I have committed myself) and while I do agree to a certain extent with the affirmation "most new plays suck" I think that's even a stronger case to help out and nurture the new writers.
Because once in a while, among all those sucky plays, you get something like "You Can See The Hills" or "The Pride".
