playwrights interview playwrights

I love this concept. In interviews, playwrights oftentimes get asked the same questions, what inspired the play, what advice do you have for young writers, etc, so when a playwright interviews a playwright, the interviewer knows which questions are over or already asked, and instead tosses out the kind of questions that they might want to be asked. So if I was, say, interviewing my friend and yoga teacher and hero Sheila Callaghan for her upcoming production at the Echo, I might, say, ask her what a sentence is like inside of her head, what she likes to make in her crockpot, and what is wrong with my warrior pose, and we might spill wine everywhere and we might be two playwrights in heaven, rambling about the things that round us out as we shove snacks intended for children into our gobs.
