Name: Phil Williams
What is your current project?
“#bitchdrinks”, a social commentary on the misconceptions of women in today’s society, using poetry and spoken word to dissect, and debunk some of their myths and myriads, as well as address obstacles they inexplicably face.
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
Friends and Lovers, located on 641 Classon Avenue in Brooklyn. It’s aesthetic and atmosphere fit with the production’s overall feel and setting.
What’s next for you?
A new play called “Between The Lines” written by our playwright-in-residence, Chris Patterson, to premiere this fall.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Any advice for your peers?
Never stop listening to others. If you are collaborating with other artists, leave no stone unturned and always be open to absolutely anything.
