Spotlight on Graham Livengood as Dickie

Oh, Graham. What can you even say about him… other than hold on for a wild ride!

PP:  Tell us a little bit about the character you’re playing. And which triangle is he in?

Graham: I’m playing Dickie Bell, Director of Crouching Squirrel Golf and Racquet Club. Dickie isn’t in a triangle–he has his very own special orbit. Like a planet trying to ruin other planets’ orbits. Dickie has one and only one directive: Dickie comes first.

PP: Without spoiling any surprises, do you have a particular scene that’s your favorite?

Graham: There are several scenes in this show where someone who is seemingly incompetent outsmarts the “smarter” person. You can’t judge a book by its cover, especially since all these covers are mostly insane.

PP: Do you actually play golf in real life? Any golfing stories? Please tell us the cast party includes a round of putt-putt golf…

Graham: Why yes, the cast party is 100% mini-golf (we’re not children). In fact, Jeff Messer and I may or may not have a fairly substantial wager on the game. Make sure to attend the final performance on Saturday September 16th and you might be able to figure out who won.

Of course, you’re always welcome to come before the final performance!

P.S. Kristen says that in all the years she’s known Graham, she’d never heard “that laugh” before this show!
