JH: Welcome to Books by My Friends, Irene! Thanks for dropping by to share your play with us.

JH: What’s the blurb for your play?

IP: In a future where humans hunt androids for sport, one young man’s jungle excursion bleeds into a struggle to save his wife’s life. A thrilling and explosive play that explores questions of the soul, survival, and the fundamentals of civil rights.

JH: What inspired you to write the play How to Field Dress an Android?

IP: With gun violence, equality, and health care remaining major issues in American news, I wanted to explore a story that tackles these topics in a science fiction setting – on the stage. I used Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game” as inspiration for the starting premise, and my drama developed from there.

JH: What one thing do you love most about writing?

IP: I love writing for the stage because the collaborative magic of theatre is unparalleled in anything else I’ve ever done.

JH: What’s next for you in the way of writing/publishing?

IP: I’m currently working on a play about the disruptive power of passion – whether that’s passion for another person or for a career. It is expected to be a 60-minute dramedy for five actors, with plenty of twists and turns. That’s all I can say about it for now without spoiling the fun. 🙂

JH: “…the disruptive power of passion…” what an awesome phrase!

Thanks, Irene. Please come back and tell us about the disruptive power of passion when it is ready to share with the world.

All good things,
