Local with Laura Ekstrand

Nov 28, 2021

This month on Local, Laura connects with playwright, actor and director Emma Gibbson. Emma is a British playwright now based out of Philadelphia, where she founded the theatre company Tiny Dynamite. Vivid Stage fans can look forward to seeing Emma’s writing come to life in the main stage production of her play; Water in My Hands. Emma talks with Laura about her journey and evaluation as an artist — from her founding of a theatre company using Pepsi bottle caps, to the methodical writing process of everything from prose, to poetry to theatre, and sometimes all three at once. Listen in on this fascinating conversation between two theatre aficionados.
