by guest blogger 99 Seatsthis other idea that I love. So, maybe we don't do it, so we can exclude 'em. I'm being a bit of a jerk about it, but the whole obsession with MFAs, from both the people who have them and the people who don't, is a bit ridiculous. It's not a magic piece of paper that bestows superpowers on the holder, for God's sake, but it's also not an automatic mark of elitism. Yes, mainly upper-middle class people go, but a lot of lower-middle class people go, too. Why don't we just focus on producing the best plays, no matter where they come from? If a million instant MFAs will produce that, I'm all for it.
