Playwrights Galore (2012)

As much as I look forward to the next play, it's also rather satisfying looking back through my collection of theatre programmes and seeing the names which feature over and over again. Since it's been almost two years since I last did a tally, I thought it's high time for an update. So here's the list of playwrights from whom I've seen more than one play.
