Shelby-Allison Hibbs of TheaterJones speaks with The Necessities playwright Blake Hackler about the play, its origins and development, and juggling his roles as educator, playwright, actor, and director across DFW.
The play asks an incredible mount of bravery from the actors. Bravery in terms of emotional bravery. I just can’t tell you what an amazing group of actors this play has, and how brave and fearless they are in tackling this. I feel so lucky that they are going as far as they’re going.
