Conallen: Of all the experience Ive had growing up, I would say mostly thatd be in terms of my family. Im Irish Catholic so my family is fairly big, and I definitely have taken certain aspects of aunts, uncles and cousins taking their personalities to add spice to some characters. SPR: What drew you to "Red Speedo" and what about your character, Peter, got you excited to play him? Conallen: I was invested in Peter essentially because of the way he treated his younger brother Ray in terms of that familial bond and how he wants to take care of him and how hes basically willing to do anything to help this kid out. Of course, at the end, his ire is based on family betrayal, which is not something that you do in a South Philadelphia home. That was very interesting for me to play with and work through. SPR: You open the play with a nine minute or so monologue that sort of sets the tone and fills the audience in on what has happened then sets up whats coming. That monologue is something that must have got you excited as you signed on for the play. Source: http://www.southphillyreview.com/arts-and-entertainment/Diving_in_head_first-282565961.html
