Of all the things to lose in the shuffle of heading down to Mexico City, I just realized that I never posted a link to this Howlround chat I had with christopher oscar peña on writing race, new work, and all sorts of other challenges faced by playwrights today.
My Parents Were Tiger People (Howlround, May 19, 2013)
Speaking of Mexico, the Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them translation workshop is going amazingly well. Humberto has done excellent work with the Spanish-language version, and it’s amazing to see the reactions of the student actors at UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) that are enthusiastically working with director Boris Schoemann and the two of us through this incredibly nuanced process. And, of course, it is always such fun bonding with the folks from The Lark and witnessing the love, thought, and intense preparation they put into all of their projects.
I can’t wait until we show Edith Puede Disparar y Dar en el Blanco to the world!
