Q & A with MWT writer Martin Rice
Q. Who do you write for? Yourself, your audience, an unseen audience – who?
The clearest answer I can give for this is that I write mostly for myself; to understand my world, particularly the intersect between what I have experienced to be real and what I feel to be real. I also hope to inspire my students (I am a secondary teacher)
Q. How would you describe your writing style?
I can tell you I love magic realism and a hint of the supernatural. This is how I would describe my writing, and how I hope an audience would, too.
Q. Is there a play you are bursting to write?
I’m bursting to finish the one I have been working on; in fits and starts, for the past couple of years. It is the origin of my monologue ‘The Charon’ and I am very close to being happy about it. A touch of myth, a touch of drag and a dash of reality.
Martin’s monologue ‘The Charon’ will be performed at the 2018 season of The Melbourne Monologues, which will run from 26th November – 2nd December at La Mama Courthouse.
