Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

All of us carry within ourselves stories distilled from experience. These are our epiphanies and enlightenments, our moral lessons and cautionary tales, our buried secrets and deeply rooted truths. Theatre is a place where we can bring forth and share our stories, unearth the hidden meaning in them, and allow them to transform us in a shared, immediate, and visceral way. I write plays to give a theatrical form to my own stories and those entrusted to me by others in a way that allows an audience to connect with the characters and find their own truth and meaning in the story. It is this search for a shared and meaningful experience in the theatre that motivates me as a playwright.
