What does it mean to write a play, or to act it out? Is it association to some core and common human experience? Or is it something else?

Please bring something to write with and on (computers are acceptable!).

Test yourself and find out exactly what it is to translate a thought from the brain, to the page, to the stage. Please bring something to write with and on (but no computers!).
