Studio Theater reaches ‘Kit Marlowe’ agreement

Playwright Grimm objected to play's prod'n

In what amounts to a learning experience for all concerned, D.C.’s Studio Theater has reached an accommodation with playwright David Grimm over the scribe’s objections to its production of his play, “Kit Marlowe.”

An agreement with Grimm, agent Morgan Jenness and the publisher, Dramatists Play Service, followed accusations that director Michael Chamberlain extensively rewrote the play, cut dialogue and created new characters. The monthlong run closed Dec. 2 at the resident theater’s non-Equity Second Stage, a training space for its Acting Conservatory.

It turns out that the theater was provided with an earlier version of the script, which is where “the majority of the problems stemmed from,” a theater rep said.
