Canadian playwright Leanna Brodie on the question:
“What would you like academics to write about your work in 50 years?”
“In writing with humour and insight of a varied and distinctive panoply of characters, Brodie showed an infectious compassion for all, without pity or sentiment for any. That is why audiences still love to see her plays, and actors still love to play them.
They also single-handedly created world peace, which most people see as a plus.”
That about sums it up for all of us, I think.
If you’re not yet reading Torontonian MK Piatkowski’s series of playwright interviews Umbrella Talk, you’re in for a huge treat. One of my favourite weekly hits of inspiration. Check it out at her company blog; One Big Umbrella.
