I Interview Playwrights Part 651: Christie Perfetti Williams



Christie Perfetti Williams

Hometown: Born and raised in Oswego, NY. Moved to NYC after college graduation and lived there for 11 years.

Current Town: Brick, NJ

Q:  Tell me about An Appeal to the Woman of the House.

A:  It's about a husband and wife who get a knock on their door one night and their lives are forever changed.

Q:  What else are you working on now?

A:  A novel...it's been a long time since I worked on one of those. It's fun and naughty.

Q:  Tell me, if you will, a story from your childhood that explains who you are as a writer or as a person.

A:  Oh boy. Me in a nutshell?! As a kid, I used to insist that before we started a Barbie doll playing session, we had an outlined premise, conflict and conclusion. And God help the poor friend who deviated from it.

Q:  If you could change one thing about theater, what would it be?

A:  There need to be more and better parts for women. Period.

Q:  Who are or were your theatrical heroes?

A:  If Sam Shepard knocked on my door tonight, I'd runaway with him. My husband would understand.

Q:  What kind of theater excites you?

A:  I love simple stories with great dialogue. Sets, costume, funky gels - I don't need all of that. The barebones of theater turns me on.

Q:  What advice do you have for playwrights just starting out?

A:  Write your hearts out. And don't stop.
