LUCY THURBER is a playwright who lives in New York City.
I have known David since 1999. He has produced five of my plays, three of them multiple timesmost recently The Hill Town Plays ran simultaneously in five downtown theaters this past summer. He is the artistic director and founder of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, which has produced over 60 world premieres in the past 17 seasons. Rattlestick is where I learned to be a playwright. We talked on a rehearsal break for his own play, A Fable.
