What Brechtian playwright cast children in his plays?

I'm having trouble remembering a playwright I read about long ago. IIRC, this playwright is considered an heir to the Brechtian tradition, and he accordingly hated using professional actors with practiced mannerisms. In order to achieve verfremdungseffekt when directing, he would sometimes cast high schoolers with no previous acting expreience. I think it might be Edward Bond, but I'm not sure. Any ideas? I'm pretty sure that he's British.

Theatre pseudonym

Theatre/er question: Traditionally, when an actor played several parts on the stage - from Elizabethan times up to C20, I believe - the minor roles would be credited to a particular name in the cast. Anyone know what the usual pseudonym was?

How to find playwrights and sketch writers in NYC?

A friend and I are producing and directing a biweekly variety-type theater show. We've run our own weekly show much like this with our own creative crew for a number of months, so the production angle is quite familiar, but we need fresh writing blood from outside our social circle. We'd like to open our submissions to playwrights, sketch writers, monologists, and the like, but it's an awfully big city. What are the best ways to find such people willing to submit writing, especially in NYC? Craigslist leaps out as the obvious choice, as does flyering up colleges, but there must be other options as well. [more inside]

How do I get the rights to a book before adapting it into a screenplay.

CopyrightFilter: If I want to adapt a copyrighted(?) book into a theater performance, do I need to get the rights? Can I write a script, maybe even do a workshop production or do I need to get the rights before I can even think about adaptation? Who do I talk to to get the rights, and how much does this usually cost? Does it matter if the venue is tiny, and the theater company has no money?

Directing novice actors

I'm directing The Vagina Monologues here at my university. Rehearsals are going well, for the most part.

My problems are with the older women, who are all professors or health care professionals who have never acted before(MI). [more inside]

Online Ticketing

I run a not-for-profit theatre company. It's a 501(c)(3) corporation. We would like to take our own ticket orders online via credit card. We're currently using Smarttix.com, but they take a big chunk out of each ticket sale -- plus they charge us a $75 "setup fee" per show.

I'm wondering if there are other services I could switch to that would be more cost-effective.
