I like to think everyone has a story and you’re looking to unearth the one that will connect during an interview. Playwright Future D. Fidel has some obvious examples in his dramatic past. An orphan, a refugee, an immigrant from war torn Congo. His past will always be with him and always of interest to others who have experienced safer childhoods with less loss. Yet Future is more than just this, he is an incredible talented artist and it was a privilege to interview him for Scenestr magazine in the lead-up to a national tour of his award winning play Prize Fighter. You can read the interview here http://scenestr.com.au/arts/prize-fighter-future-d-fidel-s-emotional-work-on-tour-20180918
Produced by Eyeball Media Enterprises, Scenestr is an online national magazine with local offices around Australia. Celebrating 25 years in 2018 of publishing history they’ve excelled at moving into the digital realm but they remain at heart from the streets. They still publish magazines in print for WA, SA, NSW, Vic and QLD every month. This interview was published in print in the October issue for Victoria on page 29 which is always a thrill for a GenX guy like myself. A digital copy of that issue can be viewed here http://scenestr.com.au/read/VIC/2018/02-VIC/scenestr-VIC-02.html#p=29 If you’re into music they’re a great read but they do cover all of the arts including festivals, stand-up comics, fashion, theatre and film. I feel very fortunate to get to write for them.

Good review as always, Lloyd. I have never heard off him, but he looks to be someone to watch.
I hope you get to see the play too. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
That would be great Pete but I think that ship has sailed. Thank you for reading, very talented man. Does an engineering degree as a back-up.
That is an excellent trailer. I’ve always had a great regard for boxing as a good way for city kids to get it out of their system in a way that has rules and encourages respect for an opponent. Thanks for bringing an unknown playwright to our notice. I wish him every success!
I think he’s quite accomplished already in our neck of the woods but it’s nice news of him abroad in my little corner of the internet.
Thank you John.
