Playwright Eva Suter on the world premiere of her play, Hold Me Well.
What are you most excited about for the premiere of Hold Me Well?
Writing this play was like writing a novel -- and only showing a little bit. I take a lot of joy in the project of world building, of all the side stories and settings just out of sight. Seeing Hold Me Well up on its feet woke that world up again, and starts my mind spinning on what's next. Where else to be explored.
I worked with Rudy early on in the initial development and world building of Hold Me Well, it's such a rad blessing to have his sharp brain and heart leading up this world premiere! I've dug Shrewd's work in town for a nice while now and am stoked to be working on this project with Shannon and the team (who's vision and excitement are a thing for this little heart to behold).
