What’s your name and where are you from?
My name’s Halley Feiffer. I’m from New York City. i grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
What are you working on while at SPACE?
I’ve been working on a couple different projects. Mostly I’m working on rewrites for my play How to Make Friends and then Kill Them which is going to be at the Rattlestick in the fall.
How have you been spending your time while at SPACE?
Just languishing in heaven. I’ve been trying to get up early and do a little bit of work, eating delicious breakfast, and getting to know the other artist who are all fascinating, hilarious, smart, nice, fun, and then working as much as I can, eating more food, laughing, and yesterday I went jogging for 12 minutes.
What’s coming up next for you and this project?
Well after this i’m going to the Cape Cod Theatre Project which is probably really different from SPACE. But it’s somewhere where I’m going to get to do a lot of writing because I have a lot of stuff I need to do, and I’m incredibly grateful that I get to do that. After that I’m going to go home and start rehearsals for a play that I’m acting in actually. Then we start rehearsals for a different play of mine that’s going to be at the Stella Adler Studio . We’re starting rehearsals for this one that I’m working on here in September.
If you were to be reincarnated as a farm animal or anything on the farm what would it be?
I don’t want to be those roosters they seem really spiritually troubled. I guess I would want to be Emily. I’d want to be Emily, Rachel, Molly, you, or Lorenzo. Or a flower, there are some really pretty flowers here, or that basil we had in the pesto.
