Calling all dramaturgs.  Come back!  All is forgiven.  Or mostly – whatever.  There is a sudden glut of waaaay too long plays recently hatched that could have used a judicious eye and a pair of scissors.  Greater Clements has now joined the three hour club, and for no good reason other than to add new meaning to “exposition”.  Judith Ivey and Edmond Donovan are the only nuggets in this mining town.
