Thea & Lily

    I love the way Willis sparsely uses language to create mood, tension, and humor in this short play; there’s a lot packed into its 10 pages, yet nothing is overstated; it moves with the swiftness of an unexpected sock to the jaw.

    I saw a reading of this Thelma-and-Louise-esque piece and absolutely loved it. Willis' writing style and voice are innovative and refreshing, and the way Thea and Lily's relationship balances on the razor-thin edge of love and hostility is realistic and done with such finesse. I hope to one day see a full production of this!
