The trumpeter and composer Samantha Boshnack isn't a geologist by trade, but she certainly thinks a lot about earthquakes and volcanoes. Over the past 15 years, while living in her adopted hometown of Seattle, Boshnack has hiked the environs of Washington's Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens with a kind of unnerved fascination. During her travels in places like Mexico and Indonesia, she's made a point to visit the storied volcanic sites. Throughout her journeys, a couple of questions have persisted: What causes these astounding landscapes and events, and how are they all connected? And how can these vistas be so unspeakably beautiful yet also harbor such a profound potential for catastrophe?

The Big Match and other one act plays gives a brief glimpse of the magic of theatre, ideally meant to present a slice of life, whether comedy or tragedy. This collection has different subjects, different styles, some of them funny, some that might be disturbing. Anyone who loves theatre will find pleasure here. I was fortunate to direct some of these plays with fine actors, so any faults in the productions were the director's. As in all my plays that I directed, the playwright let the director run the show, following an adage: However it reads on the page, it has to work on the stage.

In many ways, Mouthpiece is a play which is distinctly about Edinburgh, where I was born and lived until I was 18. From the cafes of the New Town, through the city's art galleries, to high up on Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags from where you can see the whole city, including the housing estates otherwise invisible to tourist, the geography of the city lives large in the world of the play, and I hope that there is a real sense of place running through it.
