Janet Bentley, Producing Director at T. Schreiber Theatre, interviews Victoria Guthrie who plays Lily in the upcoming T. Schreiber production of Blood Sky.
1. Janet - Tell me about the character you're playing in Blood Sky by Yasmine Beverly Rana.
Lilly got pregnant unexpectedly when she was too young and the father took off leaving her to raise the child on her own. These events largely shaped her personality and outlook on life of being "stuck". She dreams of being free but is too afraid to make it happen.
