Martyna Majok’s favorite part of the playmaking process…

12004013_957323963458_7856394589900562867_n

Steppenwolf Article: GETTING TO KNOW PLAYWRIGHT MARTYNA MAJOK

Martyna Majok: Workshops. Tom Stoppard likens outside perspectives on his plays to going through customs at the airport. The officer asks you to declare what you have in your luggage. you tell him. “A four character play about a lady at a bus stop in Jersey.” Then he goes rifling through your bags and finds all these things you didn’t realize you’d packed. Like capitalism and the contradictions of modern feminism in certain socioeconomic situations.
