Julie Jensen’s SHE WAS MY BROTHER opened Plan-B’s 2010/11, 20th anniversary season. Her CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS receives its world premiere this December as part of Plan-B’s 2014/15 season. She shares her thoughts about being a gay playwright as part of Give OUT Day.
I’ve been a playwright for a million years. Had productions all over the world. Most of those theatres didn’t know I was gay, didn’t want to know. Lately some theatres have known, but have chosen not to say anything about it. At Plan-B, however, I get credit for being gay, encouraged to write about gay subjects, and taken seriously for both. Thank you, Plan-B. I’m happy to be associated with you.
