NY Theater Now has a long interview up with me, about playwriting. One of the questions concerns where my inspiration comes from:
'There's technical inspiration, in the form of other people's plays that I admire, where I say to myself “that was a clever set-up,” or “that was a deeply moving bit of self-revelation.” But there's also the emotional inspiration, which for me is often the everyday courage of people standing up for their own values, struggling to achieve their personal goals or to cope with their personal dilemmas. I am perennially fascinated by the human quest for love, and the varied forms that it takes.'
I like to think that acts of bravery
outweigh those of brazen knavery.
