I Interview Playwrights Part 989: Boni B. Alvarez





Boni B. Alvarez

Hometown: East Palo Alto, CA

Current Town : Los Angeles

Q: Tell me about 'Fixed'

A:  Fixed was inspired by Calderon’s Physician of His Own Honor. I examine the notions of honor and chivalry and virtue and transpose them onto a Filipino drag queen’s relationship with her not-so-open Mexican boyfriend. Fixed also borrows a lot from ’80s and ’90s drag ball culture – the kind of world documented in Paris Is Burning.

Q: What else are you working on now?

A:  Revising my play Refuge For a Purple Heart. It’s a love story between an Austrian Jewish refugee and a Filipino boy in Japanese-occupied Manila . Basically, an epic gay love story set against the backdrop of WWII.

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

A:  I wish artists could make a living solely creating theater.

Q: Who are or were your theatrical heroes?

A:  I love Tennessee Williams. I love that he himself is always so present in his work – there’s rarely a question of why did he write this?

Q: What kind of theater excites you?

A:  Theater that takes risks, theater that’s so theatrical it couldn’t be anything but a play. Theater that reflects our world today - that I could envision myself being a part of.

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

A:  Be nice and humble and appreciative. Be diligent and serious and fun – basically, be the kind of playwright that people want to spend time with – no one’s doing plays for the money. Write, write, write. You’re not a playwright if you don’t write.

Q: Plugs, please:

A:  Fixed opens Sept 17th at the Echo Theater in Atwater Village . It plays through October 22nd.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
