Default What I won't write

A lot of playwrights are busily writing their Coronavirus plays. Im sure there are 800 plays about couples cooped up in self-isolation. (Forget that theres WHOS AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?).

Since the current theatre trend is to stage as many zeitgeist-themed plays as possible, what better? Suddenly all the playwrights with immigration and trans plays are out of luck. Coronavirus is the new hot thing.

I will not be writing one.

Once TV series go back into production I imagine there will be a slew of Coronavirus-themed episodes as well. Certainly on the doctor and hospital shows. But I suspect every show will have at least one main character who comes down with it.

I will not be writing one.

And Im sure screenwriters are busily cranking out their post-virus doomsday movie scripts.

I will not be writing one of those either.

Heres my feeling: After this horrible ordeal, who the hell is going to want to watch a Coronavirus play, or movie, or episode of STATION 19?

I believe we will watch anything BUT Coronavirus stories.

When this is all over, it might be a good time to revisit a little genre called COMEDY.

That I will write.
