Order Soldier's 'For me the opening moments of a play are most important, in terms of form. I might begin a play a hundred times until I get it absolutely right. Because if I don't get you in those first few minutes, I've lost you. I want to get you caught up as fast as possible. You hear something, you see something, there's enough to drag your butt into that play. . . . Once I'm dead certain of the opening moments, the rest is a lot simpler.'

-- Charles Fuller
