"Is that really what people want? Plays about well-off white people with cancer?"

(Yes, Mark, it is.)

Great interview up at Parabasis with Mark Schultz, writer of Deathbed (now at the McGinn Cazale theatre - tickets here) and, disclaimer, one of my favorite people (and playwrights) in the world.

(I'm a delinquent and haven't seen the play yet, but I've read it, and love it. I also love the 'unfinished' play Mark mentions in the interview, Magic Kingdom, and if I say that here, maybe it'll add to all the pestering I give Mark about it and he'll realize it's maybe his best play, and something amazing will happen.)
