I had the great pleasure of returning for my third year as a playwright for Theatre Breaking Through Barrier's Playmaker's Intensive in November. I love writing for the company, and had a blast creating the short play 'The Emperor I of Bensonhurst and Various Parts of Bath Beach' for my delightful cast of 5, directed superbly by Kristin Heckler, in just one short but intensive week!

From wh auden's September 1, 1939:
"Defenceless under the night /Our world in stupor lies; /Yet, dotted everywhere, /Ironic points of light /Flash out wherever the Just /Exchange their messages: May I, composed like them /Of Eros and of dust,/ Beleaguered by the same /Negation and despair/, Show an affirming flame."
