"What I've learned over the
years is you don't get an
agent until you've got some
productions under your belt,"
she adds.
Albee's agent replied that
although he liked her play, he
wasn't interested in represen-
ting her at the time. Dubin
packed up her aspirations
and put them on the shelf.
There followed an 11-year
intermission between Dubin's
plays. She obtained her
master's degree in English
and taught at Oakland Com-
munity College. Then her in-
terests shifted toward
psychology, and she earned a
second master's degree, in
counseling, at Oakland
University. She opened a
private counseling practice
and had a child, Nick, 13.
In 1982, the curtain finally
rose on Act II of "Kitty Dubin,
Playwright." A helpful push
from time, as well as a little
shove from some spousal
rivalry, got the theatrical ac-
tion going again.
"How many more decades
are going to pass before you
do this?" Dubin chided
herself. Then, her husband,
Larry Dubin, a professor at
the University of Detroit Law
School, started writing and
publishing articles on legal
topics.
"What is he doing writing?"
Dubin responded. "I should
be writing. I'm the writer in
this family."
Within a matter of months,
Dubin had three magazine
pieces published, including
one in Family Circle that net-
ted her 15 talk-show ap-
pearances. Encouraged, she
wrote a new play, and then
another, Mirrors, which was
produced at the State Fair
Theater in 1986.
Dubin's coup led to deepen-
ed commitment. Returning to
Wayne State, she took a year-
long playwriting class where
she wrote The Last Resort and
refined her craft.
Bringing a play from con-
ception to production takes
more than an inspired flick of
the Bic. "The whole thing, if
it's fast, takes two years,"
Dubin says.
The road from first draft to
opening night is paved with
many risks. But, discussing
her art, Dubin sounds quiet-
ly confident and happy to
have reached the point of tak-
ing herself seriously. She says
she's excited about a current
project, The Ties That Bind,
her fifth play, and gratified by
the success she's achieved
thus far.
"Most playwrights do not
get productions in their
lifetimes. They get a reading,"
Dubin says. "I feel I've been
very fortunate." ❑
