“As an emerging playwright, I was in the process of writing a short play and I had reached a juncture in which I could not see the characters for the play. I had lost touch with them and wanted to be reintroduced. Fiona, as Dramaturg, allowed me to refocus and flesh out the characters into people with more profound needs and history.
Our sessions were often conversations over a cup of coffee and if overheard, could easily be taken for two people discussing the intimate lives of a couple. Her questions were pertinent and allowed me to delve deeper into the lives of the characters and see them from perspectives that I had not considered.
Fiona, thank you. Your insight and empathy helped me to develop two characters with complex lives.”
