Tyler's writing favors the panorama over the portrait, featuring an eclectic catalogue of plays that develop intricate communities through an abundance of voices and varied images. He believes above all in experimenting with form and the power of a sense of fun in the theatre. His plays are curious, inquisitively silly, and meticulously funny, necessitating a bouncy tenor and quick rhythm. Archetypes and familiar containers are utilized as tools of subversion - it’s all about the joy of the specifics.
He likes to write:
-Unromantic romantic comedies
-The lengths we go to not say what we mean
-A cultural backwash of references
-Things we don't expect to hear
-And puppets, man. puppets
Tyler's work is available on New Play Exchange.
