Playwrights Foundation- INTERVIEW WITH PLAYWRIGHT DIPIKA GUHA AND ROUGH READING OF HER PLAY LIFTED

 Playwrights Foundation- INTERVIEW WITH PLAYWRIGHT DIPIKA GUHA AND ROUGH READING OF HER PLAY LIFTED

We had the chance to interview Dipika Guha on her process, motivation, and experience as a Resident Playwright at PF

You can view the entire interview on Vimeo, but here’s just a sampling of some of her remarkably insightful thoughts:

 

“As a playwright, we have the opportunity to begin the world again when we write plays, and my plays tend to be set in imagined worlds that draw very real resonances from history, but they’re always slightly askew…I think there’s an attempt in that to foster a kind of imaginative space.”

 

   

“I think tragicomedy in particular strikes me … of life being both things simultaneously, that speaks to me as being true…There something in that multi-genre device that is thorny and poses the question rather than a simple solution.””

“There is such a diversity of aesthetic and voice in this room it’s truly thrilling to be part of the [Resident Playwrights] Initiative.

 

 

 

It’s the Last Rough Readings of the Year!
November’s Rough Readings presents two intimate readings of Dipika Guha’s new play Lifted in early draft form, offering audiences a rare opportunity to engage directly with the artistic process of bringing a play to life.
