Note from Director

"I am looking to you, the actor, to be a collaborator in this process. The whole theater world has had to adapt suddenly and even though it may feel like a hindrance to rehearse and perform remotely- now is the perfect opportunity for theater artists to experiment with something completely new (necessity being the mother-in law of invention... I think I have that wrong). I am being called your "Director" but that is not how I am approaching this project. I am here to honor the text, serve the story, and lead an ensemble. I look forward to seeing your work. -John Crosthwaite MFA"
