I am a storyteller at heart. I have created characters we all know, whether we want to admit it or not - characters who make us laugh and cry, who make us slightly uncomfortable and who know heartache. Most of my plays have lesbian characters. I want to create characters and a story that resonate with me, the women I know and the women we’ve loved.
