Interview with MONDOMagazine

Posted by on November 16, 2010

In case some of you didn’t already know, Owen is a perpetual writer for an online publication called MONDOMagazine, and a few years ago, Curtis was also a contributing writer. Recently, we were able to sit down and talk with Isaac Mills from MONDO about our Kill Shakespeare backup story.

Owen and Curtis Kill Shakespeare

by Isaac Mills, MONDOMagazine, 16 November, 2010

MONDO: Your story is set in Julius Caesar’s era. Is there anything you would feel comfortable talking about with the story?

Owen: Our goal with this story was to sort of tangentially link one of the Shakespeare plays that Kill Shakespeare couldn’t really fit in because of the time difference. And so I won’t say exactly how, but we’ve sort of found a way to tie it in to that mythology and show how there are some common threads between the story of Julius Caesar and the other stories in Kill Shakespeare.

Curtis: Yeah, and in a way the Julius Caesar story itself is a pretty good allegory for what’s going on in their book because it’s a conspiracy to kill someone that they believe is a tyrant. And it’s kind of ambiguous as to whether or not he is a tyrant, or whether or not he’s a good person.

Owen: Right. It was really challenging in five pages to basically retell a significant chunk of Julius Caesar AND tie it in to their book AND make it a character piece. We had to be very economical.

Curtis: Five pages is really hard.
