4 Questions with Kristiana Colón
Kristiana Colón’s play good friday is now appearing in LeapFest XII. The play tells the story of a shooting that takes place on a college campus. We asked Kristiana some questions about the play and its unusual path to LeapFest.
SLT: Where did the inspiration for good friday come from?
KRISTIANA: good friday is a reimagining of my 2009 play the darkest pit which takes place in a college classroom as a school shooting is unfolding. The initial constraint of the play was to write something that could be performed by all college students with an all-female cast, and I was interested in jarring audience expectations of the realm of woman-centric storytelling. I explore how all-female spaces are unique in situations of crisis and extreme violence.
