Spotlight On...Bekah Brunstetter

Name: Bekah Brunstetter

Hometown:
Winston-Salem, NC

Education: BFA UNC Chapel Hill; MFA The New School for Drama

Favorite Credits: OOHRAH! (Atlantic Theater); Be a Good Little Widow (Ars Nova); House of Home (Williamstown Theater Festival)

Why theater?: Theater keeps me connected to other humans, which I love. Writing can be really solitary, and from the moment I started doing plays (badly, in high school). I immediately fell in love with how it forces me to pay attention to the world, and the people inside of it.

What inspired you to write Miss Lilly Gets Boned?: I was inspired by an article that my friend shared with me forever ago about elephants, and how recently, in their native habitats, they’ve been becoming increasingly violent. The elephants felt so human that I couldn’t help but start to match it human story. And so, anthropomorphism!

What kind of theater speaks to you? What or who inspires you as an artist?:
I like theater that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but is also quietly profound. I like visual, specific and strange plays that are somehow grounded in reality. I’m really inspired by both the base and incredible things you read in the news, but just as inspired by the things that terrify me.

If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: I would perhaps give a limb to write a musical with Joanna Newsom.

What shows have you recommended to your friends?: I recommend anything by Amy Herzog, Book of Mormon, and Once because I LOVE the music but have yet to afford to be able to like, see it, but I imagine it’s incredible.

Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: Zooey Deschanel stars in “Don’t Call me Quirky: The Bekah Brunstetter Story”

What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?:
MOZERELLA STICKS and or an entire bag of Goldfish in bed with, with Hulu.

If you weren’t working in theater, you would be _____?: Something with flowers!

What’s up next?: I’m currently developing plays with The Roundabout, Naked Angels, and EST – hoping to work on a production of one of them soon!

  1. Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures. This can be a problem, since a carcass which has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal,

  3. but also every other animal which feeds on the carcass. Humans have also been killed by coming in contact with poisoned meat, or by eating an animal which had fed on a poisoned carcass. This tool is also used to manage several caterpillars e.g. Spodoptera litura, fruit flies, snails and slugs, crabs etc.

  4. Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
