Out to Dry
Margie Langston studied playwriting at the University of Virginia, but took 
some years off to raise two children and work in a variety of careers before
being drawn back into the dramatic life.  She has been a member of several 
playwrights groups, most recently the Richmond Playwrights Forum.  

In April of this year, the one-act play you are seeing tonight had a staged reading 
at the Firehouse Theatre in Richmond for their monthly “Hot Lunch at the 
Firehouse” series of staged readings for new plays.  In 2004, her one-act play, 
“Painting the Truth” won first place in Richmond’s Barksdale Theatre Footlights 
Series for new playwrights. 
Margie also enjoys radio theatre, and wrote an hour-long mystery drama that 
was selected to be produced by San Francisco-based “Shoestring Radio Theatre” 
and broadcast in September 2006 on public radio stations in 34 states as well as 
on the internet. Margie also contributes scripts to the Richmond-based
“On the Air Radio Players,” of which she is a member. 

When not acting or writing, she works as a manager of condos and townhouses, 
which provides an unending source of characters and stories for inspiration, as 
well as a paycheck. She is excited to be in Louisiana because it gives her a 
chance to visit her daughter who makes her home in New Orleans.
