Hearken to the creator!

1. Why did you write this play?
Through the years I’ve seen a number of younger actors or school college students be reluctant to tackle a “unhealthy” character as a result of they thought it might replicate in their very own character. “If I play a nasty character, then I am thought of a nasty particular person.” Which brings us to a giant query: what does it imply to be “good” or “unhealthy?” And who decides what’s “good” or “unhealthy?” And that was my place to begin.

2. Describe the theme in a single or two sentences.
What does it imply to be “good” or unhealthy? What does it imply to play a “unhealthy” character.

3. What’s an important visible for you on this piece?
There is a second the place a personality holds up a pockets full of money and asks the opposite characters and the viewers in the event that they’d take it in the event that they discovered it on the bottom. Would you?

4. In the event you might give the creators of the play one piece of recommendation, what would it not be?
It is a thumbnail set, so it is easy to default to a breakdown between every scene. In the event you have a look at the script, it is particularly designed to keep away from that. Energy outages suck the life out of the drive and ahead motion of an element. Use choreographed transitions and music to transition from second to second.

5. Why is that this piece best for pupil performers?
Not solely are the characters good for evaluation on this play, however the query of what is “good” and what’s “unhealthy” is a superb speaking level. How do your college students outline the 2?
