Welcome to Exit the Stage Door, a series of conversations with the folks working hard to make the DC theatre scene such a great one. It's Episode 1 and with it comes a talk with Danielle Mohlman, author of Dust, and curator of a great Tumblr about books and the joy of reading. You can find out more about Danielle and her work at her own website, daniellemohlman.com.
We spend a lot of this time during this episode talking about Dust, the play that Danielle is hard at work dreaming up all over again. Danielle is also one of the founding members of Field Trip Theatre, as well as the former artistic director when Field Trip produced Patrick Flynn's Giant Box of Porn and Liz Maestri's Fallbeil at Capital Fringe, among other accomplishments. Last, and certainly not least, Danielle was an inaugural member of Playwright's Arena, a new play initiative sponsored by Arena Stage and the American Voices New Play Institute designed to facilitate dialogue between local playwrights and support their growth as artistic voices.
And finally, you can catch Danielle's work as part of Pinky Swear's production of Tiny House Plays, which opens on September 27th and runs through October 12 in a bunch of tiny houses in a corner of DC, an experiment conducted by Boneyard Studios. It's a super exciting project and I am so glad that we can promote it a bit ahead of their opening. Go see it. I know I will.
I had a lot of fun talking to her, I hope you enjoy listening to her. Welcome to Exit the Stage Door. See you again in two weeks, when I talk with playwright, teacher, and filmmaker, Patrick Flynn. Until then, Danielle Mohlman!
