AFTERNOON SALON with Playwright Catherine Filloux and Mo'olelo Artistic Director Seema Sueko

CATHERINE FILLOUX, a playwright who focuses on genocide and other human rights issues, has written twelve plays, three of which have been professionally read here in San Diego. Primarily working as a solo playwright, she also has done a good deal of collaborative work. In addition to writing plays, Catherine has written numerous articles and has served as a speaker for human rights and playwriting conferences and organizations around the world. She writes, "A desire to take a stand--no matter what--inspired my new play, Killing the Boss. What can a playwright truly do to work for justice? How far do you put yourself out there? What do you do with the anger and the pain? Killing the Boss has been a hard, long road toward forgiveness, toward my belief in theater as an extremely precious art form."
