MEET THE PLAYWRIGHT: Anne Flanagan
|Our Second Annual evening of parodies and homages returns with Cocktails and Classics. Learn more about the playwrights and performers in this blog series. |
Meet Anne Flanagan, whose "Sales of a Deathman" shows just what Willy Loman is peddling now!
What inspired you to write your piece?
The title came to me first, as a punchline for another script, and it got me thinking, "What would sales of a "Death Man" be exactly?" The play grew from there.
What's your favorite thing about theatre?
The visceral "aliveness" of it.
Why are classics and new takes on classics still important today?
Because basic human needs; the need for love, the lust for power, the want of recognition, a search for meaning; these don't change, regardless of the time period.
