Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

At its best, theatre reminds us who we are, where we have been, and where we could possibly go. Great theatre connects us to our own histories and forces us to reckon with ourselves in the immediacy of the moment.

I have concentrated much of my writing career on dramatizing historical memory and the public/private experience of the self. The way memory affects communities and individuals continues to fascinate me and appears in most of my plays.

Often drawing from dark humor and magical realism, I incorporate themes of time, shame, redemption, and all the ways we attempt to connect our present selves to our past selves.
