This season, actresses liberate themselves via playwriting --- If you're an actor seeking a great role, then you may want to write it yourself. Just ask performer-turned-playwright Nandita Shenoy. "I started writing initially because I just found the roles that I was auditioning for so uninspiring," she says. Because she's of Indian descent, the...
