Alice Tuan is a playwright based in Los Angeles. She is the author of monologues, plays and screenplays, including the hypertext play Coastline, and the short plays F.E.T.C.H. and Coco Puffs, which were both presented at the Humana Festival in 2002. Humana commissioned Tuan to work with Whit MacLaughlin (featured in an earlier podcast) and New Paradise Laboratories to develop BATCH: An American Bachelor/ette Party Spectacle, which premiered at the 2007 festival.
In this podcast Tuan extolls the benefits of winging it and then writing it down, and how the process of creating BATCH was a lot like a marriage.
