One-Person Shows

Episode 23’s guest is actress Taylor M. Dooley, who recently starred in the one-woman show “Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up,” a heart-wrenching and hilarious play written by Lucy Alibar. Throughout the two-act play, Taylor embodies 10-plus characters. She clues us into the painstaking process of developing each character through backstory and movement processes. Taylor then opens up about what it was like to play a character whose father died while her own father was passing away in real life.
