When the playwright Sibyl Kempson brought a very rough draft of a new script, “Fondly, Collette Richland,” to the theater company Elevator Repair Service, it didn’t look much like a play.

“It was pretty nuts,” Ms. Kempson said. “It was kind of incomprehensible.”

John Collins, the artistic director of the theater company, agreed. “It wasn’t structured as a drama at all,” he said. “It was just lines on top of lines.”

“It was so weird,” Ms. Kempson sighed.
