NOTE FROM PLAYWRIGHT
I write about two kinds of characters. They are either larger than life characters that are facing relatable conflicts such as love and friendship or they are everyman characters forced to face larger than life obstacles. There is something fitting about seeing presidents and superheroes dealing with their love life or any of the various primitive emotions we have. Witnessing characters like people we know and root for them to overcome what may seem impossible is quite freeing. These are the characters that we learn from the most.
My mission as an artist is to create new stories about characters that tell the truth in the most beautiful of ways.
