The Artistic Director actually sent me a "Condolence Letter!" Thought my play was one of the best submitted, and said he fought hard for it. But, there are other theatres involved in this particular Festival and I guess it is a democratic kind of vote as to what gets selected.
Anyway, he was very kind to do that. Never actually got a "Condolence Letter" on a submission before. He does have a good sense of humor, One can tell. He said if there is anything I want to submit in the future just to query him.
He was very kind. Wish more theatres were like that. I was quite touched.
