Kampfire FringeNYC Playwrights on JSTGY

In Patrick Lee's first in a series of several Quick Q&A columns featuring artists who have work, or who will be seen in work, at this year’s Fringe Festival at his site Just Shows To Go You, he featured three Kampfire clients that are sure to sizzle your summer: Playwrights Michael Edison Hayden (The Books), Daniel McCoy (Eli and Cheryl Jump) and Louise Flory (Look After You). Below are the questions, to read the answers, click here.


The Books

What is the story of The Books?

Is it fair to say it’s about breaking out of those rituals?

What do you hope to get out of your experience artistically at The Fringe?


Eli and Cheryl Jump

What is Eli and Cheryl Jump about?

How is it staged?

What were the main qualities you were looking for in casting?

What do you want the audience to leave with?


Look After You

Tell me about Look After You.

How long have you been working on the play?

Are you taking anything into your own performance that you got from watching others read it?

Will you be seeing other shows in the Festival?
