Summary
An exploration of the goals and techniques of Joseph Papp's famous enterprise in New York City, The Public Theater, this program includes interviews with playwrights David Freeman, John Guare, and Myrna Lamb. It presents excerpts of their plays as finished productions or works in progress. The plays highlighted are David Freeman's Jessie and the Bandit Queen, John Guare's Rich and Famous, Myrna Lamb's Apple Pie. Papp and the writers discuss such issues as what attracts American playwrights, what they use as raw materials for their plots and characterizations, the role of women playwrights, and the persistence of the parent-child relationship as play material.
