Sajar: What type of genre is The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens?

Adam: It’s like a murder mystery with a lot of over the top characters!

Sajar: What is the backstory?

Adam: It all revolves around the family and friends of Ed Wellington the third, the guy who gets murdered.

Sajar: Can you talk a bit about your character?

Adam: I play Tony Blackwell. This is a little cheesy but he’s the playboy character and I have a sister named Allegra who is really mean.

Sajar: What’s your favorite thing about Tony Blackwell?

Adam: He’s just really fun to play and I get to be over the top. I also play a new type of character. I’m usually the “bad guy” so this is different.

Sajar: Why was The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens chosen?

Adam: We were originally going to do one set in France but we weren’t able to make some changes we wanted, so she ended up choosing this one because [Ester Musilli] liked that there was more cast.

Sajar: How far are you into The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens?

Adam: As of today [10/7/2022] we are done blocking and are going to be working with props soon, so we are pretty far in.
