Project on Tyranny Part Five: Tim J. Lord

Playwrights’ Corner
How do you go through something like that and then not change? Not write something else, and not try and change the conversation?"
— Tim J. Lord on the Moscow theater siege of 2002

The final playwright to speak at The Lark's Project on Tyranny panel on January 31st was our Apothetae and Lark Playwriting Fellow Tim J. Lord. Tim discusses the journey of his epic new play that began as an adaptation of The Bacchae, then became The Bacchae with Antigone as a subplot, and has now progressed into an adaptation of Oedipus Rex which does not happen to include the character of Oedipus. Check out the video below to hear more about why Tim chooses to center Disability in his play, and why he feels that as a writer he must remain "stupid, and full of hope."

Johnson (All the Natalie Portmans), Rajiv Joseph (Nativity), and Mona Mansour (We Swim, We Talk, We Go to War). Check out what these writers had to say in their segments!
