An Interview With Rebecca Martinez

Willa & Mom
Q: What is it like to play Mom?
 R: The mother in this story is a lover of literature.  She uses it to teach her children about beauty, but she also uses books as an escape.  I feel that she spends quite a bit of time living in the stories that she reads, they are safe, controlled, the outcome clearly visible.  When tragedy strikes the family, books no longer offer this release and she is at a loss as to how to connect with her daughter
Q: Why should people come see this play?
R: It’s a challenging story, it can be difficult, but even when faced with unbelievable adversity, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Q: What is the play about?
R: Tragedy can strike at anytime, but we can’t live our lives waiting for the worst to happen.  Yet if it does, it is very hard to predict how we will react.  There are no rules.
Q: What has been rewarding about working on this play?
R: I am a lover of poetry and I have the privilege of speaking some incredibly evocative language.  I love to explore the power that language and literature has on the characters in this story.  It’s powerful for me to be able to get a glimpse at a loving mother who also feels like she may be failing her family.
Q: What is your favorite book?   Favorite play?
R: I love a good story.  One of my favorite things is to go to a bookstore and look at the sale paperbacks and buy one that sounds interesting and then go to a nearby Thai restaurant, order myself some tofu pad thai and have myself a little party.
Q: Shakespeare or Faulkner.  Choose one. 
R: I’ll put my money on Shakespeare.  Faulkner’s got a killer left hook, but Shakespeare goes to the body like nobody’s business.
Q: What role do you feel literature plays in our lives?  What were your favorite books as a kid?
R: I was a voracious reader as a child.  I remember a time in elementary school when we had a contest to see who could read the most books in our grade.  I was so far ahead of everyone that the teachers would only let me read books with more than 100 pages.
As a child I lived in a small town of 5,000 people in Nebraska and was influenced and fascinated by the area’s pioneer past.  My own family came out to Nebraska because of the Homestead Act.  I read all theLittle House on the Prairie books and all of Willa Cather’s books multiple times.  I also was fascinated by any big, broad historical novel such asThe Walking Drum by Louis L’amour.
Q: Describe one vivid memory at age 13
R: I remember standing in the kitchen with a copy of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee in my hand.   My father warned me that it would make me furious.  He was correct.
Q:What are you working on next?
R: Immediately after closing this show, I will be performing at The Culture Project’s Directors Weekend in a devised piece exploring American foreign policy directed by Shana Solomon and after that I will be performing in an amazing Finnish play entitled Broken Heart Storyproduced by Ingenue Theatre and directed by Tracy Cameron Francis in September and October.
