Dancing on Quicksand, 2nd Edition
by Edward Pomerantz
Adventure. That’s the key word here. Every play in this collection began with a question, a strong scene, image, or situation that haunted me, whose mystery could only be solved by writing it, moving step by step into unknown territory, emboldening me with clues and discoveries, as I moved forward, loving the danger of it, dancing on quicksand. “We’re lucky,” William Carlos Williams tells us, “when we catch the evasive life of the thing.” With these plays, and the one I’m writing now, I feel lucky to still be spending my days in pursuit of it.
