I am not a person who likes being on a stage. In groups of more than 2 people, I attempt to become one with the back row. (OK, maybe 10 people. Being in a TV writers’ room has trained me for the better.) But the Lillys are an amazing celebration of women in theatre, of women creating networks of advocacy and support, of allies who show up to do the same. And if you’re going to fly back for an evening in NYC, the best company for that evening would be a room of playwright ladies like Marsha Norman, Julia Jordan, Sarah Ruhl, Jocelyn Bioh, and many many others.
