Announced yesterday: my latest play will have its premiere in the spring of 2019, a co-production between @prjct_humanity and @crowstheatre. I'm so happy that this journey with Kathleen Gallagher (@auntkath) has this next chapter, and that Towards Youth has a home in a Crow's season celebrating young people and verbatim theatre...couldn't be more perfect. What's mildly trippy is that the photo we've used for this production image is one I took exactly one year ago TODAY, in Athens. The youth in the image had just performed monologues written by young refugees - some of whom were in attendance. Following their performances these students took to the street outside the theatre and raised their hands in silence, in solidarity with those suffering in the humanitarian crisis. What is worth noting is that the youth in this image are themselves shouldering Greece's economic crisis of many years. I can't help but think of youth and movements and the March For Our Lives tomorrow in the States. And I continue to feel humbled and inspired by the vision and activism of youth citizens around the globe. I truly can't wait to share the words of the shatteringly smart and moving youth I've encountered over the past few years.
