News

"Avast and be forewarned — pirates have entered the Hudson Valley!" See 'Pirate' on the Powerhouse stage (Poughkeepsie Journal, 22 July 2010).

Theater writer Edward Meisel sat down with writer and director John Patrick Shanley and actors Charlotte Parry and Bill Camp to discuss Pirate. Shanley explained that: "Even though I wrote the play, it is only through the investigations of the actors that I have come to completely understand what I wrote, as well as how to put it across to an audience. To write a play is one thing, but it is when you give it to the actors to perform that you find out exactly what it is. You can't complete the entire thing until you see it away from you across the room."
