On November 28, 1988 Elinor Renfield sat down with Austin Pendleton at Westside Arts Theatre to discuss the experience of directing Michael Weller's Spoils of War. In this candid in-depth interview, Mr. Pendleton discusses this original piece from development to opening just eighteen days after Spoils premiered at the Music Box Theatre on Broadway. He covers the writing process with Weller, casting Kate Nelligan and Alice Playten and rehearsing the roles that would earn them a Tony nomination and a Drama Desk nomination, respectively.
