HAMMOND ESSAYS/INTERVIEWS

Hot Review: "Brecht, Love and Taylor Mac"

I write the occasional essay for Hot Review, a forum for serious critical writing on theatre, past and present, with an emphasis on contemporary theatre in New York City.  This essay is about the downtown genius singer/playwright/performer Taylor Mac and the Bertold Brecht play in which a man plays a woman who disguises herself as a man in order to survive.

Hot Review: "How to Stay a New York Playwright"

 This essay, How to Stay a New York Playwright, was written in the summer of 2010, during the run of Eva the Chaste on Theatre Row.   Hot Review is a forum for serious critical writing about the theatre, past and present, with an emphasis on contemporary theatre in New York City.

Scripts & Scribes

I was interviewed in Signature Theatre Lobby in June 2012 about my life as a writer.  In this ten minute video -- and the follow-up one-hour audio interview -- I discuss writing plays for both sides of the Atlantic,  what's important to me about being a woman, and the difference between writing for theatre and film.
