The following excerpt is from an interview (“psychological intervention”) with Longwood playwright Brett Hursey. Hursey wrote Small Doses — a collection of seven ten-minute comedies — soon to be produced by the Waterworks Players on February 20th and 21st at 8:00 pm.
Question: So, are you happy with the production so far?
Hursey: Well, the writing is absolutely brilliant — but the Director is a compete idiot without a shred of taste.
Question: Who’s directing the show?
Hursey: I am.
Question: Where do you get your ideas?
Hursey: Usually they come as a result of medication… or the lack of medication.
Question: Why is Small Doses made up of seven short comedies — instead of, say, six?
Hursey: Because I figured I could do more damage with seven.
Question: Is it true there is a man dressed as a Giant Rabbit in one of these shows?
Question: Is it true there are talking Egg and Sperm in one of these shows?
Hursey: No comment.
