Artistic Statement

I write plays about the struggle for justice on a personal scale. They depict people who discover what they are made of when their comfortable illusions are ripped away and reality jumps up to bite them. One may be a sheltered widow confronting crimes of the past; another, a young foreign aid worker trying to resolve a volatile situation in a culture she doesn’t really understand. These characters desperately want to make a difference in their world, but at what price? Their passion is thwarted by the limits of personal power or circumstance, with no easy solution.
