Hot Playwrights

I was at an event for playwrights last year (it wouldn't be nice of me to say which one) when I had a realization: in general, we're kind of fugly. I looked around at these pasty, pudding people with their bad skin and jacked up outfits and thought, "I might as well be at a Dungeons & Dragons convention."

I know I'm generalizing in a way that's not very nice. I'm doing it on purpose because it's fun. I've written about it elsewhere, but Martin McDonagh is a massive exception to the uggo rule. Check it out:

Oh snap! He's one hot silver fox. Can't you just picture smoking a cigarette with him in bed? I don't even smoke!

I can only think of one playwright who I think is hotter, but I actually know him so I won't post his name here. What do you think? Who are the hip, stylish, sexy, cool playwrights?

Is this what you were thinking during winter retreat?

I suggest you google some images of young Tom Stoppard. Dang! Talk about the real thing...

Plink,

Really? I just did. Even when his skin was still taut he looked like an empty plastic bag.

Nonsense. Look into his eyes!

He looks like Arthur 2: On The Rocks.

More like a tall Mick Jagger.

THAT'S Martin McDonaugh!? Holy crap. He was already my favorite playwright. Now he's...even more favorite.
