 A Pleasurable Deal: The Shocking Truth Information

[Below is a transcript of an interview with the writer and director of 'A Pleasurable Deal', Mr. Kingsley Harp]

Interviewer: What was the inspiration behind this, if I may be so bold, entirely lewd piece of drama?

Harp: It's about exploring the taboo. Seeing who we, as people, really are. Yes, Robert makes a deal with a cambion, but who wouldn't?

Interviewer: Well, I like to think most people wouln't.

Harp: Then you don't know most people. Everyone wants something. Everyone needs something. Cambions can see it. In a way, they know us better than we know ourselves.

Interviewer: But at the end of the play, Robert dies horribly. What does that say about what we, as you put it, 'need'?

Harp: You forget, Robert dies because he broke away from Carlisle. He didn't stay true to the deal they made.

Interviewer: So you're encouraging people to make a pact with hells' offspring? To give up, as Robert did, his soul?

Harp: We only have one life. Why not make the most of it?

Interviewer: So .. what was your deal?

Harp: I beg your pardon?

Interviewer: In fact, this was your directorial debut, wasn't it? You couldn't even get published in the tabloid 'Baldur's Bash' before this play came out. Did you honestly trade your soul for an erotic play?

Harp: I- all right, we're done here.
