Audio Interview with Peggy Engels, Playwright of Red HOT PATRIOT Now Playing in Austin

During South-by-Southwest Event.  "Completion Complex" Featured for Creativity

© Russ Barnes, 2011

Margaret Engels is a playwright, a journalist, and a twin. Listen to all about that stuff, the creative voice, freedom of speech, and more at MP3 audio interview at: The play is performed through the South by Southwest festival in Austin through March 13.

Not only was I impressed with her stage play written alongside her sister, Allison, which is an interesting story in itself.  But I was also impressed with the Zach Theatre production of it in Austin, and the actress who played the one woman show, Barbara Chisolm.   Standing ovation.  I especially liked it when Peggy said that “creativity requires a completion complex.”  It’s not just ideas.  It’s also about getting them implemented.  Meeting a deadline.  Our country, the United States, needs that kind of action and that kind of thought.

Check out the interview.  If you have a difficulty opening it, let me know and I will try to fix it for you.  The interview is sponsored by the American Creativiy Association of Austin.  For information about this global organization on creativity, open to you, send me a line at: and I will get you in touch with the right folks to sign up.  We need your creativity for a better society and better individual fulfillment.
