Sally Dixon Wiener Biography (1926-)

Addresses: Agent: c/o Robert Freedman, Brandt and Brandt Dramatic Department, 1501 Broadway, New York, NY, 10036.

"Harold Prince, the producer, has said that casting is 90% of direction, andI suppose 99% of playwrighting is sweat. It's the 1%, when a character takes over the typewriter, that's the joy. Putting Act I, Scene 1, Page 1 on a piece of paper is giving over a period of your life, all too voluntarily,to discouragement and loneliness, and, usually, with no promise of it becoming a reality on stage. If and when it does, there is another kind of joy--thecollaborative process during which, suddenly, it is no longer your baby. Itis a child who has learned to walk. And even though the monetary rewards are,for the most part, few and far between, for the average playwright, one feels in good company."
