John Collins and Sibyl Kempson in Conversation with Philip Bither



ERS director John Collins and avant-playwright Sibyl Kempson talk about their creative process, both in general and in the making of Fondly, Collette Richland. Their discussion delves into the essential roles of humor and “failure” in their work as well as such topics as detail vs. overarching structure in playwriting and ERS’s ability to find ways to take strange artistic risks post-Gatz, its ambitious 2006 production.
