Count oneself lucky to be even considered to be counted alongside the Greats .. and the Greats refers to the great playwrights, writers of our time who have been published by Samuel French Plays Publishers, London England.
I endeavoured to pursue the notion of publication of my own play but I was knocked out of the race at the beginning by being considered unworthy to stand alongside the Greats Writers of our time! So, as its possible to see these writers as people with mortal flesh like me I pursued the notion with Samuel French Plays Publishers of London and dutifully sent Paul Taylor my play to read! Samuel French & Co were courteous and extremely polite but firm in their reply and said that French are famous for publishing only the Greats and I would be literally blown out of the water at a moment's notice. So, they had got me hooked and I asked Paul Taylor for a list of these Great Playwrights and I include it as follows:
I have come to know them all as if they were my friends some are dead some have gone elsewhere but I have read their Plays in my seminars and classes for over 25 years so it was simply a suggestion from my writing partner and both of us would stand shoulder to shoulder with The Greats of Literature!
Still, I keep on hoping .. as the play References was a great success in Performance in English recently this September 14 in Southampton England! Nice work and thanks Samuel French Plays Publishers London for the information ..
