It Begins

I know we were told in our playwriting workshops never to preface our comments, but screw it. I am going to do my best to recap what occurred today at the meeting. As I am not a professional stenographer, forgive me for paraphrasing (or totally missing) your points. Feel free to correct or comment on anything that you think needs to be clarified.
