NOTE FROM PLAYWRIGHT

Art is a humanistic way to discern at least in part why we do what we do, what we are doing here and what is a life well lived. In my plays, I seek to explore facets of these issues for answers or sometimes for a laugh. My lifetime career as a therapist has helped me answer some of these questions some of the time. I remain intrigued.
