I don't know him. But I'm overwhelmingly jealous! It consumes me!

Thank you for indulging this outburst.

He is quite prolific. But his plays don't really have much dramatic action. Any in every single of them, without someone says "Do you want to see my c#ck?" or "Can I see your c#ck?" or "Would you like to watch me wack off?". Seriously. Check it out.

C#ck notwithstanding...

I do know him, sorta. Haven't hear from him since around 2003. He was my friend's roommate freshman year at NYU. A good guy. The three of us used to sit in diners all over the Village and try to figure out why "Angels In America" left us cold. Also a blogger. Never showed anyone his c#ck, as far as I know. At least not without asking first.

Those are the only themes that I could gleen from his plays. Someone whipping out their c#ck or requesting to have someone whip it out and plots that I never really understood where they went or what the event of the play was.

I'm sure, it plays better on stage. I've only read his plays. I've always been more interested in modern playwrights whose text feels very active like Joe Penhall, Sarah Kane, Tracy Letts, Patrick Marber, or Sarah Ruhl.

Anyway, to each their own. It's nice to see young playwrights like Chris and Sarah getting recognition on a commercial stage. It gives me and other playwrights hope.
