After losing a valued veteran from its dramaturgical department, South Coast Repertory has continued something of a youth movement on its artistic staff. Jennifer Kiger, 28, has taken over as literary manager in place of the departed John Glore. As dramaturges, they serve as the in-house literary experts who help scout and refine plays for production. South Coast hired Kiger last October, soon after her graduation from Harvard's American Repertory Theatre Institute for Advanced Theatre Training.

Rolin Jones lives in a $400-a-month apartment above a noisy pub in New Haven, Conn. An unpleasant odor of baked potato often rises to his room, and many a night his floorboards throb with the bass line of Warren Zevon's pounding rock song "Lawyers, Guns and Money."

As a small, struggling grass-roots theater company, the Hunger Artists could be excused for spending the days before Christmas longing for some Santa Claus of thespians to drop down the chute with a sackful of goodies.

Stage-struck kids dream of becoming actors and dancers, playwrights and singers, directors and producers, fashioners of costumes and designers of sets. It is a reasonable assumption that few, if any, burn to be dramaturges. Dramaturges? If your first response is, "Sounds Greek to me," you're absolutely right. Derived from the Greek words for drama and work, the term is so arcane that experts differ on how to spell and pronounce it.
