Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

The first play I wrote was in 1987, a couple of weeks after my mother died. I watched "Bambi" and was furious that in the animated feature, like in my life, no one addresses the death of the mother. I rewrote the script, put my sisters and cousins in costumes and make-up, directed it and presented it to my family as a coping mechanism. I haven't stopped reimagining stories since.
