Imagination is more important than knowledge.
My name is Sean Paraventi. I’m a Detroit playwright and actor. (Insert predictable joke about Detroit here.) Yes, I’m proud to be from the D.
I try to write plays that both theatre and non-theatre people can enjoy. Often my plays are linear and they make sense! (Crazy huh?) I believe my job as a playwright first and foremost is to entertain. If plays don’t entertain, they can’t accomplish anything else. I never take myself too seriously but I always take my work seriously.
I strive to bring fully rounded characters to the stage — people who meet the challenges I throw at them with a fair amount of humor – usually, although not always. I have been known to visit my dark side on occasion.
Thanks for visiting, and for God’s sake, turn off the computer and TV every now and then and go out and see some local theatre!
You’ll be a better person for it.
