Vinyard Theatre Interview with Playwright Julia Cho (original production)
Growing up the child of Korean immigrants in Arizona, playwright Julia Cho had little exposure to theatre, beyond the occasional class play or traveling Broadway production. But a trip to New York at 14 - and a chance ticket to John Guare's Six Degrees of Separation - left no doubt in her mind what she wanted to do. She began writing plays in earnest while in college, and saw her career take off soon after. Her plays - which include last season's critically acclaimed Durango at the Public Theater, as well as The Architecture of Loss, BFE, 99 Histories and The Winchester House - have been produced in major theatres around the country. The Vineyard‘s Associate Artistic Director Sarah Stern spoke with Julia about the unexpected phone call that sparked The Piano Teacher, and how the play has taken her in new directions.
