You Are What You Love

William Faulkner said: "An artist is completely amoral in that he will rob, beg, borrow, or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done." Ever felt paralyzed by comparing yourself to an idol? This workshop will explore how to use your influences and let them shine through. Come armed with your favorite poem, novel, song or other piece of art, and we’ll create scenes and monologues that experiment with imitation and homage. With prompts and discussion, we’ll learn how to harness your hero worship and create work that could only have come from you.

Matthew Freeman’s work been produced throughout New York City, by way of Blue Coyote Theater Group, Gorilla Repertory Theater, Dixon Place, Theater Accident, HERE Arts Center, Incubator Arts Project at St. Mark's Church, and The Brick Theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Outside of New York, his work has been heard at the HearNow Festival in Kansas City and Atlanta Fringe Radio. Plays include: Why We Left Brooklyn, Bluebeard, That Which Isn’t, When is a Clock, The Listeners, The Most Wonderful Love, Glee Club, The Great Escape, The Death of King Arthur, An Interview with the Author, The Americans, That Old Soft Shoe, Confess Your Bubble, and Brandywine Distillery Fire. His plays and monologues have been published by Samuel French, Smith & Kraus, Applause, the New York Theater Experience/IndieTheaterNow, and Playscripts, Inc. Freeman is a graduate of Emerson College, where he studied with Kristin Linklater and playwright David Valdes-Greenwood. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Pam Grossman. Along with director Kyle Ancowitz, Freeman is a part of Theater Accident.
