Christina Anderson

Drama

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20150130, 20130510

Christina Anderson is an up-and-coming playwright who grew up in Kansas City, Kansas. She talks about her unusual journey first to Brown University and then to Yale to study theatre. She discusses the importance of transformation in her plays, from the first creative spark to the final curtain call, and hopes that her work will inspire change in the real world by testing audiences about their feelings on settings and situations not often examined. She reads from her play, Good Goods, published in 2012 in The Methuen Drama Book of Post-Black Plays,  and discusses Blacktop Sky, which was produced as part of the National New Play Network.
