Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

I often sit in awe at the power of the theater to offer transformation and insight, to open hearts and minds to new perspectives, and to let the spirit soar. My full-length and one-act plays, some comic, others serious with comic edges, use stylized realism to address provocative topics, and sometimes ordinary ones. Through them, I aim to embrace the audience in a swath of ideas and images and to open them to new ways of considering the world. It is in seeing vicariously through the eyes of those on stage that we can begin to envision adding lightness, change and hope to our own worlds - whether addressing the death penalty or reclaiming the histories that have been hidden.
