Longwood Playwright Brett Hursey’s “Small Doses” opens at Waterworks

The following excerpt is from an interview (“psychological intervention”) with Longwood playwright Brett Hursey. Hursey wrote Small Doses — a collection of seven ten-minute comedies — soon to be produced by the Waterworks Players on February 20th and 21st at 8:00 pm.

Question: So, are you happy with the production so far?

Hursey: Well, the writing is absolutely brilliant — but the Director is a compete idiot without a shred of taste.

Question: Who’s directing the show?

Hursey: I am.

Question: Where do you get your ideas?

Hursey: Usually they come as a result of medication… or the lack of medication.

Question: Why is Small Doses made up of seven short comedies — instead of, say, six?

Hursey: Because I figured I could do more damage with seven.

Question: Is it true there is a man dressed as a Giant Rabbit in one of these shows?

Hursey: Yes.

Question: Is it true there are talking Egg and Sperm in one of these shows?

Hursey: No comment.
