From the Author
"[I]t might be a line, it might be a moment, it might be a visual scene or something, but you want [the audience] to have something that stays with them…. I want them to be stimulated emotionally or intellectually. And when they leave, I don't want them to talk about the costumes or the lighting or any of those aspects. I want them to talk about whatever has happened in the play: the ideas, or the conflicts the characters had, or the choices they made. I also want them to have a good time, of course, but essentially I want them to leave with more than what they had when they entered the theatre." (2011-10-25)
