Julie Doan plays Emma in Be Right Back, one of seven plays that are part of the second annual 10-Minute Play Festival at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. It was written by Scott Haan.
Question: Who is Emma?
Julie Doan: Emma is a loving wife who likes to banter with her husband. They're smart, they're funny, they're really good together. They make a good team.
Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about acting in a 10-minute play?
J.D.: I love 10-minute plays because I have a short attention span. I like that the point gets made quickly. It's challenging as an actor, especially in Be Right Back, because we have two extremes to play. I am absolutely enjoying acting in this.
