An open letter of apology to Roald Dahl

Dear Mister Dahl,

I'm sorry your work was not included in the reading packet for The Weimar Fairy Tale Project. Your work will, without a doubt, still be primary influence on the creation of the piece, and to make amends, I am hereby suggesting that all collaborators working on the project read a 2005 New Yorker article written about your work: "THE CANDY MAN: Why children love Roald Dahl’s stories—and many adults don’t"

I hope you will accept our humblest apologies and a pair of complimentary tickets to the fall world-premiere of our production. The tickets and an industry packet will be waiting at the box office in your name.
