Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

My plays are naturalistic with strong and natural dialogue and full-dimensional characters. I use humor as an integral part of the story, but the plots tend to depend on character interaction, and my works have been compared thematically to Lanford Wilson’s later plays. The themes revolve around changes to the status quo for the characters, and a deep sense of uncertainty about their way forward in life. While most of my plays feature gay characters, I do not consider my works to be gay plays. Rather, they are plays that happen to have gay characters who are facing the same decisions about life that all people face at one time in their life.
