Auszug aus einem Interview mit Charles Evered, dem Autoren des Theaterstücks:
Question: Was "The Size of the World" the first play of yours done in a theatre of note? And what did that play getting produced do for you?
C. Evered: Well, I had had a play produced at The Actor's Studio in New York first, but "Size" really was a great experience. It was first done as a workshop at The Yale School of Drama starring Sean Cullen. Then Lloyd Richards produced it as part of the Winterfest at Yale Rep. Walt Jones directed and Liev Schreiber played the role of Peter Hogancamp. The plays reception was a great blessing to me. It went on to be done as a reading at The Williamstown Theatre Festival with Olympia Dukakis, Louis Zorich and William Fichtner and then given a full production at Circle Rep, directed by Austin Pendleton and starring Frank Whaley, Rita Moreno and Louis Zorich. My first agent, the late great Mary Meagher, was a great champion of the play.
