It all started with a question

And we're still trying to find the answer

A play is a conversation - so let's talk.

Greco-Roman preferred.

Thanks to stopping by. Or maybe dropping in again. This is where we get to have a conversation, just us, one on one.

I’ll be sipping coffee* or Scotch and maybe you will be too, and though there will be a time lag between when I’m writing and when you’re reading, there will be something magical in that - that we can exist together in time*. And I’ll get to tell you about all the things I do which, from the outside, might all seem unrelated at first, but just trust it - whether as playwright, as teacher, as drag queen, as producer, it's all just a means to converse with you, to wrestle with a question I don't fully understand and ask "hey, what do you think?". So poke around and let me know: what DO you think?

Now I’m raising my glass to you, so cheers your screen. Just don’t clink the glass too hard.

Dark roast with milk.

time-travel is exhausting!

Working with someone like Anton is continuously inspiring because

I think you are heroic for so many reasons that I won’t even begin to get into here…. Instead I will tell you a story…  For my 30th birthday my husband surprised

The big 3-0

I just turned thirty. I thought this day would never come. Not because I dreaded it. Quite the opposite, I’ve felt like I was in my 30s for a long time. Thirty isn’t scary but rather it’s a moment when you get to settle into the adult you’ve been trying to be through your twenties but haven’t been taken seriously. Though I’m lucky. I exist
