Andrew Hinderaker on Writing Plays from the Gut

Start very small–and very personal. Dirty started with my own sense of privilege. Positioned against most of the world, I am the 1 percent. For me, there were some profound implications in the financial collapse–it’s a byproduct of a system we’re all complicit in creating. I don’t want to let people off the hook. I don’t want to let myself off the hook.
-- Andrew Hinderaker

Andrew Hinderaker, 33, penned Dirty, playing through Nov. 18 at Gift Theatre. 4802 N. Milwaukee Ave., thegifttheatre.org
