On Playwriting

“I am not a courageous person by nature. I have simply discovered that, at certain key moments in this life, you must find courage in yourself, in order to move forward and live. All the really exciting things possible during the course of a lifetime require a little more courage than we currently have. A deep breath and a leap.” - JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY 

A great playwright understands the magic of a great sentence and knows that great action needs no words. I want to write like John Patrick Shanley. Like Sarah Ruehl. Like Lynn Nottage. I want to investigate the world like Eve Ensler. Like Emily Mann. I want to chase a story like a journalist. I want to figure out how to put words and moments and actions together like the best of them. I am not the best of them, but I am trying. Always gathering stories. And I love gathering stories. Stories of refugees in the Balkans, of survivors of violent crime, of peace workers, and cancer survivors, and normal everyday people doing extraordinary things. I want to put these stories on a stage so that people are moved and reminded that the theatre is one of the last places in which we sit together, breathe, imagine, and dare to be moved.
