PLAYWRIGHT ROBERT MATTSON TALKS ABOUT
Q: TELL US ABOUT WRITING THIS PLAY.
A: The three stories in this play all are about being in a tough situation where the characters are being put on the spot. They are all young women facing challenging situations and dealing with them in their own ways. I think that was a good challenge for a writer and I really enjoyed that process.
Q: WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER?
A: I like Emma in "Babysitter Brokerage." She has such a good heart.
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE PLAY? WHY?
A: I really like when a 16-year-old cheerleader can explain supply and demand-side economics.
Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?
A: I think each play gives young performers a chance to play real characters with very quick and funny dialog. These shows are ideal for teaching young actors about comedy.
Q: ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT IT?
A: These shows are very simple to perform, but to get the best out of them each performer should know why they are saying each word.
