Q & A with Rolland Walsh
RW: I am privileged to work with such talented people on a piece that is at once timely, vital, hilarious, unforgiving and bold. What grace has befallen me to tell this story with these women?
TR: Do you have a story of a small (or large) act of revolt that you have participated in?
RW: My revolts come in the divulging of power and privilege.
TR: When have you felt part of a revolution?
RW: We are living the revolution now. Doing this show – being in the room – having the conversation – the revolution is a state of mind that we either accept or reject.
