Artist Interview: Gregory S. Moss

Tim Sanford: I’m always interested in the story of the birth of a playwright, how it happens. Where do you think it began for you? Gregory S. Moss: I started out as an actor, as a kid, when I was like seven, doing community theater. A lot of plays with giant puppets in them, a lot of fairy tales. I also did some writing, poems and stuff, along a parallel track. And I continued doing both through college. I was studying Medieval Lit in the day and acting in student-directed [María Irene] Fornes and Sam Shepard plays at night. But separately.

Greg knows what he’s doing when his primary characters, Izzy and Daniel, stumble into their uncertain final scene and seek to define their story in literary terms.


Backstory: The Livin' is Easy

Summer, that enchanted season, overflows with romance, mischief, and joy. The sun shines down, signaling an escape from the confines of everyday existence.
