PLAYWRIGHT WILL JEFFERIES TALKS ABOUT
“TROUBLE ACROSS THE POND”
Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS PLAY?
A: I thought it would be fun to toy with the idea of what would happen if there were two villains in a melodrama and what would happen if they met.
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE? WHY?
A: My favorite part is the boo-off. It was very fun getting the audience involved.
Q: WHERE DID THE CHARACTERS COME FROM?
ARE THEY BASED ON PEOPLE YOU KNOW?
A: They were simply invented, but I knew some of the cast members who were going to be in the show and I did play a bit on their physical characteristics and delivery during the minor rewrites during rehearsals.
Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?
A: I just wanted to create a fun little twist to the traditional melodrama.
