Sarah Scott stars in Any Given Monday, which opens tonight at Greenbelt Arts Center. I asked her to talk about the role of Sarah, who she plays in the show.
Sarah is a young college student in her early twenties studying philosophy at a “very prestigious university.” She is close to her family – particularly her father, Lenny – but is very aware of their shortcomings. Sarah narrates much of the play and provides commentary usually in the form of philosophical musings. In a way, she is a parallel to Scout Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, which makes Lenny the irreproachable Atticus Finch. And while Sarah, like Scout, admires her father’s moral conscience, she is appalled by the behavior of his friend Mickey, that is, until he makes her question everything she thought she knew. She also goes head-to-head with her mother Risa, the source of the family’s drama, in Sarah’s opinion.
