While I suppose there's some argument (in my head, only) to write about my poetry manuscript as my "Next Big Thing," I think I'll answer the questions as they relate to my verse play project -- partly as a way of getting my head back into the project, and as a way to kind of organize my thoughts as I gear up to (once again) birth this beast. (To be clear: the verse play, not Vampire Baby. It's too early for Vampire Baby yet. I think. I hope!)
I like the idea of writing a play that uses mostly older actors. Fuck those young whippersnappers! you know? But the way I've imagined the play, the actors will have to be young enough to also portray youth, physically.
