This week’s episode, Thesis on Joan hosts speak with writer C.A. Johnson. Hear about her recent production and premature closing of MCC’s All the Natalie Portmans, writing for sad queers watching movies about women who don’t want them, and our shared love of a certain teen heartthrob. C.A. also talks about the residencies and fellowships she’s done that give playwrights what they need, writing for tv and theatre, and experimenting with plot structures outside one based on the male orgasm.
