What about this play resonates with you?
The strength and endurance of love made evident by the two lead characters, and illustration of the necessity that we all work daily on tolerance and acceptance so that these kinds of incidents become unheard of.
What do you do to prepare for a role (or this role specifically)?
I imagine the character’s past and present situations, look into motivations and dominant characteristics, and think about what in the character relates to my own life and memories.
What does community engagement mean to you?
Community engagement is hugely important. Community is just an all encompassing word for relationships, and what is life, if not relationships? A safe community nurtures and supports us all. Connecting to community spreads the word about the necessity of mutual respect and support.
