Playwright Terry Lawrence wrote Speaking Elephant, which premieres next month at The Women's Theatre Project in Fort Lauderdale.
Mary Damiano interviewed Lawrence for Miami ArtZine:
How did the Women's Theatre Project production come about?You might have caught Ms. Lawrence on Aisle Say last week, being interviewed alongside Andi Arthur, and discussing theatre with Bill Hirschman and Hap Erstein.
Being new to the area, I read a theatre review in the SunSentinel and saw that this company did work by women playwrights with all-female casts. I was finishing up this play that had all women and was by me. I think that's the sound of the universe knocking on my door.
The Women's Theatre Project production of Speaking Elephants opens August 6th, 2009 at Sixth Star Studios.
