In this bonus episode, we interview the playwright behind Lo (Or Dear Mr. Wells), Rose Napoli.
Rose talks about her inspiration for her play, including Vladimir Nabokov’s book Lolita, and how she uses elements of her life to inform her writing. As a former teacher in a high school in Windsor, Rose had the unique perspective of being a young teacher to students who were only a few years her junior. When a scandal rocked the school where she was teaching, the kernel of an idea for her play was born.
Interviewed by Laura Mullin and Chris Tolley of Expect Theatre.
