I renounce the jive-ass bullshit which passes for contemporary American political discourse.
Is Comedy Central and The Onion flavor of commentary everything we got? Where are the fearless, unapologetic men and women who challenge the status quo with depth and seriousness? Where does the relentless reminder for self-examination and collective accountability reside?
My 2nd grade teacher taught us children about truth and liberty and justice for all. I took that lesson to heart. The trappings, literally, of American life mean little to me. I choose the road of introspection, grappling with what I learn, putting contemporary political realities into greater context, and bringing these ideas to life on paper and on stage.
America is my muse, my subject, my horror, my love. You are invited to pull up a seat.
