PLAYWRIGHT ANDREW FRODAHL TALKS ABOUT
BACK TO THE NATIVITY
1. What inspired you to write this play?
Iíve always wanted to write a story about time travel. And one day I asked myself what would happen if one of the people staying at the inn the night Jesus was born, was somehow trapped in our time? Would this change the prophecies?
2. What's your favorite part or line in the play?
When Hadley and Cliff first arrive in Bethlehem and Cliff is forced to wear a camel costume.
3. Where did the characters come from? Are they based on people you know?
My imagination. However, Hadley and Cliff share a brother relationship very similar to my own brothers.
4. What did you try to achieve with this play?
I wanted people to know that no matter what they have gone through, there is HOPE. It can be easy to let circumstances, whatever they might be, deter us from a loving God. God looks at our circumstances very differently than we do.
5. Do you have anything else you'd like to add?
The world of Piddlesfoot, Vermont and Bethlehem is full of fun and zany characters. Enjoy bringing these folks to life. The more fun you have on the stage with them, the more real they will become.
