Here’s what Steven has to say about her play and her thoughts on theater during the pandemic and beyond.
- How do you describe the essence of your play to those who haven’t seen it?
Basically how little we know about our own parents as people.
- What was your inspiration to write this script?
I’ve always wanted to right something about an Olympic athlete, but never came up with a story I thought was original till now.
- How and why did you become a playwright?
Old story. An actor who didn’t work as much as I wanted so I started writing my own material.
- What are your hopes and expectations for theater in a post-Covid world?
That it survives!!!!
- Have you been writing during the Covid quarantine? If so, what projects do you have underway? If not, how have you been filling your days?
It took me a while to get motivated but I have started again, Mostly working on comedy- the times are so bleak writing drama is too depressing.
