Behind The Scenes

With Chase Owen


What inspired you to write this play?

I’m currently a Texas Theatre teacher. I know a lot of directors who struggle to find a production that fits their group due to the lack of flexibility with gender and cast breakdown. I wanted to create a piece that can be done in a way that caters to the group a director has, and embraces them. When considering what to write about, I was instantly drawn to mythology. Since childhood I have always loved the stories rooted in ancient mythology. Such creative and fantastical stories. I wanted to write a play that stemmed from mythology. A play that gives the young performers the opportunity to learn a little mythology, and most importantly put their imagination to work. That’s what inspired me. The idea of directors and students creating a fantastical story together, and having fun! 


What's your favorite part or line in the play?  Why?

My favorite moment of "Havoc" would have to be when the box is opened, and the creatures emerge. I can only imagine the creative and amazing visuals that directors will create in this moment. It’s a challenging moment, but has endless possibilities. 


Where did the characters come from?

These characters are not based on people I know, but the stereotypes of people I know or have known.


What did you try to achieve with this play?

My goal was to write a play that young performers would love to be a part of and directors want to create! I hope I achieved that!
