Over fifty ferociously imaginative emerging artists are working together to bring our world premiere of Folk Wandering roaring into reality. Throughout the run of the show (until March 25!), we’ll be sharing interviews with each of these artists. These conversations will bring you inside this show’s very unique process of creation, and bring you a bit closer to this brilliant and wild group of emerging artists. Today, we are pleased to bring you a spotlight on Morgan Siobhan Green, who plays the role of Hanna.

Pipeline Theatre Company: What first attracted you to Folk Wandering? What made you want to work on this project?
Morgan Siobhan Green: As a black woman, Hannah is like a dream come true. Often times on stage, women of color are just angry, bitter, and unsatisfied. Folk Wandering shows a woman who loves ferociously. Loving ferociously comes with a lot of gifts and a lot pain but both sides are worth exploring.
PTC: What aspect of the Folk Wandering story do you most relate to?
MSG: I’ve dealt a lot with growing up quickly so there’s something really special regarding the younger girls’ stories in the show.
PTC: Tell us about your character in Folk Wandering.
MSG: Hannah is a wide-woman in Love. She puts her love for others before the love for herself. She finds herself running towards something that’s running from her. Hannah is definitely relatable because her strength comes through a harsh reality and yet, she’s better for having gone through all of it.
PTC: If you were to write a tagline for Folk Wandering, what would it be?
MSG: America is everything and nothing it claims to be.
PTC: What big dreams have you been chasing recently (or would you like to chase)?
MSG: I’m writing a book and doggonit, I’m gonna finish it. (and go to Disney World).
PTC: Two truths and a lie, go:
MSG: I had a pet hedgehog, I voted for Donald Trump, and I was on Slimetime live!
