The story is titled "Finding the Joy," and it was written by Sandra Hosking. Here's an excerpt:
West Virginia playwright Jonathan Joy considers 2010 a breakout year for his writing. With productions of different plays last year in North Carolina, Iowa, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia, he now has had his work performed in 10 states over the past 10 years.Congratulations, John!
“Among these, I’ve had seven productions in NYC in the past five years. The most recent was a 2009 performance of one of my favorite works, The Princess of Rome, Ohio. What excites me most, however, is my first international show,” Joy says.
His play American Standard was produced in Dubai by Backstage Dubai last November. A Romanian theatre also recently contacted him.
