“Truth in the theatre as in life is eternally difficult just as easy is the everlasting lie” Eugene O’Neill.

Of course, we are trying to say something about ourselves and about the world we live in through these characters and when I say for me it is a purgation of the spirit – I really believe it. Sometimes we don’t even know what we are trying to say:  for many reasons, we don’t want to become a soapbox or to hold up our themes and have them become some kind of polemic, but we want to hide the exposition, hide the themes, hide the plot so nobody knows where it’s going and yet at the end of the production you want the audience to  stand up like they got it, like it came together, like they recognized its truth.
