David Wiener, playwright, interview

OC Register:

"I wanted to write, but I didn't know … that it had to be personal, that it had to come from places I was unresolved about. You have to be relaxed enough so that you're not listening to that voice in your head that says, 'It's not good, it's not funny, my mom won't like it.' Instead, you have to concentrate on the emotional needs of the characters. And at some point in the process you realise you're making something to answer a need within yourself."
