No such thing as overkill. I love chatting with you. :)
And that's fascinating! Is he pretty well known, or still working on it? Have his plays been put on at some good theatres? Has he entered his plays in play competitions? Armegeddon plays usually do really well in that sort of thing.
He just does local work. And so far, he's only had short plays performed - I am DYING for when he finally does a full length play because he's SO good. I dont know if he'll ever put his work out further than our local venues - he's pretty much exclusively done work for the theatre company he and his classmates started (Elemental Theatre) - they're pretty underground right now, though they're slowly working on their non-profit status.
