I Interview Playwrights Part 1117: Paola Alexandra Soto
Adam Szymkowicz
by Adam Szymkowicz
5M ago
Paola Alexandra Soto Hometown: I was born in and grew up in an impoverished community in Santo Domingo the capital of the Dominican Republic. Although at the time I did not realize how poverty stricken the community I lived in was because my family gave me all that I needed. Though I must admit that recently I have become preoccupied with how I was potty trained when the shack I lived in had no indoor plumbing and only had access to one dilapidated wooden outhouse that we shared with another dozen or so families. This was in the 80s and 90s when the internet existed. Current Town: Wh ..read more

My 2022 in Review
Adam Szymkowicz

Hi everyone!  Happy New Year or soon to be New Year!  Here is the photo we take in front of my parents' tree every year. This year we went camping twice, visited VA and Cape Cod both twice.  I was in Los Angeles for a week for meetings.  I was in Vegas for a week for the premiere of Clown Bar 2. I was also in the Bay Area for a silent writing retreat with Erik Ehn for a week.  During that week, I wrote about half of my output for the year.  Those retreats really work for me.  Every day was like half a month of normal writing time.   Writingwise ..read more

Photo Credit:Seina Shirakura Photography Julia B. Rosenblatt Hometown: Hartford, CT Current Town: Back in Hartford! Q: Tell me about Can't Make This Sh*t Up A: About two months ago Tjasa Ferme introduced me to Transforma Theatre and The Science in Theater Festival. While I believe in science thoroughly, (which is actually something one has to make explicit these days), I am terrifyingly intimidated by the subject. My freeze response kicks in and I assume I am incapable of understanding any of it. So when Tjasa said she needed a play about an eco-toilet connected to a laboratory that ..read more

TyLie Shider Hometown: Plainfield, New Jersey Current Town: Minneapolis, Minnesota Q:  Tell me about The Gospel Woman. A: The Gospel Woman is a traditional American family drama set in a 1970’s Baptist church. It’s a kind of tribute play that I built around a gospel record my mother recorded when she was a teenager. Lastly, it’s the 2nd installment in my “Mom & Pop plays,” which are a set of companion plays that I wrote based on the original music my parents recorded growing up. I wanted to concretize and honor their ambition, because their ambition led to my professional amb ..read more

photo by Melinda Hall @snappynyc Emma Goldman-Sherman Hometown: Philadelphia, PA Current Town: New York City Q:  Tell me about FUKT. A:  FUKT was written in a few days from a prompt from Aaron Sawyer when he was the AD at Red Theater Chicago and ran the Write a Play a Day for the month of November back in 2017. For anyone who has forgotten what happened in October of 2017, a lot of women came forward in the news with histories of sexual abuse, and the world questioned their veracity. I like to write fast, especially hard material, and then revise slowly. I think it's imp ..read more

90 New Monologues
Adam Szymkowicz
by Adam Szymkowicz
1y ago
I tried writing some new things the last couple of years. The jury is still out on what will happen to the YA novels I wrote. But another thing I tried was writing new monologues. For about three months last summer I wrote a monologue most days in the morning. Most of my plays have monologues in them and there has been a steep uptick in the past five years in the number of actors doing my monologues in auditions and acting classes. I thought I would lean into it and put even more monologues in the world. So I wrote these 60 monologues and I sent it to applause and they liked it and as ..read more

I Interview Playwrights Part 1095: Cavan Hallman

Cavan Hallman Hometown: Orlando! – You have to sing it, like in The Book of Mormon. Current Town: Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It’s harder to sing, but a really good place. Q:  Tell me about Night Launch. A:  It’s inspired by my family. It struck me deeply at a holiday dinner a few years ago how diametrically opposed some of my family members’ memories were, the different ways that people choose to re-write their shared histories. In the play, Brenda is exploring memories and traumas that her mother either remembers differently, or flat out denies. It’s set in Cocoa Beach, Florida ..read more
