My favorite theatre knows it is theatre; it winks at you from behind the curtain. 

This theatre is queer and trans, not just through content and representation, but in its very form. Traditional, linear narrative structures cannot adequately express queer and trans stories and as such I am not interested in the “Well-Made Play.” I am interested in queer temporality.

Through writing I create a map of the questions I mull over - an exercise in problem-solving, even if easy answers never come. My work is not universal, but I draw on true stories, fears, and feelings, often mixing in absurdity, magic, and camp. 

I create theatre that brings us together in a physical space, and theatre that brings us together in a distanced space - whether virtually, outside the window, over the phone.

As a playwright and game creator, I’m particularly interested in the intersection of theatre and games - I enjoy making small-scale, personal, interactive experiences for participants, from groups of friends at home around the table to audience members discussing poetry with me over the phone. I think of theatre as a space for recreation and discovery - through play and imagination, we can discover new ways of being and being together.

I know how we make art is as, and more, important than the art we make. At its best my work is unapologetically sincere, and helps my audience and collaborators feel connected, less alone, less singular - for a moment they might even feel like a little part of everything.
