The LA Times featured a brief interview with theatre director Michael Matthews on September 21st. He’s the director of the current production at The Celebration Theatre, What’s Wrong with Angry?
This caught my eye: he said in college, he and his classmates were given this exercise to do for every show they directed –
1. Describe in 10 words or less what happens in the play
2. In 10 words or less tell what the play is about
3. Then in 10 words or less tell what the play means to you
I thought these were great questions for writers, too. Enjoy!
