Dear Billy Marshall Stoneking,
     I have just printed out your play and given it to our theater
director. He will read it and decide whether or not it is something he
wants to do. I have made a big push for it. You said $200 for the rights,
right? Additionally, if he wants to do the play, then I will submit a
proposal to the Intellectual Climate committee for funds to bring you here.
The idea would be to show the play, and then have audience members either
before or after the performance ask key actors, the director, and the
author questions about what they saw.
     The timeline for all of this? Who knows--but I never let anything go
to sleep, so will keep seeking answers, so at least I know that speeds up
the process. Hope we get your play on stage, and hope we get you here. All
the best, Robert K
