Behind The Scenes

With Brent Holland


What inspired you to write this play?

I love the concept of time travel.  I actually started this show about a year ago but got stumped on how it should end so I let it sit for a while.  Then one day the ending hit and I wrote the rest of it in a couple of hours.  


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

I think the concept of meeting your mentor and idol when they are younger would be pretty incredible.  The respect shown to Arabella by James and Alex in particular gives the flavor of how important Dr. Michael is in the future.  


Where did the characters come from? Are they based on people you know?

All of my characters have basis in people I know and love, but this time, in particular is the case of Rhett.  Rhett is the name of my son and that character is totally based off of him.  You will note that in the show, he is quite concerned about making sure his dad can make the trip with him.  I like to think that would be the actual case!


What did you try to achieve with this play?

I like to make people think and I like writing plays that my kids at Laney think about and try to shoot holes in.  Time travel is a slippery slope, but I think this show has the right combination of gravity and intensity based off of the time limitation.


Do you have anything else you'd like to add?

I am perfectly fine with small alterations to fit your situation. Please contact Eldridge for written approval.
