Playwright's Lament

Sent in to share with an added complaint about the greeting; why not use the playwright's name, one wonders:

Dear Playwright:

Thank you for sending [title of play] to Emerging Artists Theatre. Plays sent
to EAT are read by 2 to 3 members and a critique is written. Unfortunately, EAT decided to pass on your play.

Best of luck of you in the future.

That seems unnecessarily vague.

Did they have their 2 to 3 members read the play and write a critique that decided to pass, or did they decide to pass on having it read and critiqued?

Ah, there's nothing that can't be smoothed over with a capitalised noun. Sure, the missive itself is a rejection but the EAT people have confirmed that the 'playwright' is, indeed, a 'Playwright'.

On another note, what's next for the LROD book club (Book Club)?
