What’s Happening Now?

Howard Meyer’s characters behave in surprising, recognizable, inevitable, sometimes even tragic fashion; we understand their yearnings, want the best for them, and dread the unfolding trauma. His dialogue is enormously fresh and alive. I love Howard’s writing.

 -Craig Lucas, Pulitzer Prize nominated playwright, Prelude to a Kiss, Dying Gaul)

Howard’s play Capture is delightfully argumentative, deeply moving and thoroughly engaging.”

-John Leonard Pielmeier, author of Agnes of God, and the adaptations of The Exorcist (stage) and Pillars of the Earth (TV)

Mr. Meyer has worked with me and made an invaluable contribution through his perceptive analysis of text and performance.  Howard has a strong talent and considerable skill. His vision of theatre, both as a vehicle of personal truth as well as moral force in the community is one that I completely identify with.

– Athol Fugard, Tony award winning Playwright
