Artistic Statement

My belief is that you can’t talk about such a heavy subject without comedy. So, I make sure to always keep the audience shifting between brutal honesty and wry observations. I think this allows the audience to feel safe coming down into the depths with me. My goal with my writing is simple: I think if someone watches a show where someone can talk about really dark things in life with humor and grace, maybe they will be more willing to be honest about their own secrets. Also, there is nothing sexier than a well-crafted joke. Sidebar: There is no reason that any play of mine should be cast with all white actors. Please do not do this.
