ArtsWest: New Artistic Director Mathew Wright on his local debut with 'Dogfight'

by Amanda Knox

Mathew Wright meets me at Arts West Theater in the Alaska Junction, in the small lounge overlooking the stage. It is under construction for the upcoming production, Dogfight, Mathew’s debut as director since earning his position as Artistic Director. Mat appears young and casual, sipping a tall energy drink which no doubt has something to do with his busy hands. He is also focused and purposeful—as soon as he starts talking you can tell he knows what he’s doing. He shared an hour of his time with me to discuss the play’s production.

First of all, how's it going?

It's going well. It's been a crazy couple of months. I'm new here.

Is Dogfight your first production?
