is creating Theater

As an imperfect director, I am stimulated by working on imperfect plays written by imperfect writers, leading to imperfect performances by imperfect actors, offered to imperfect audiences who are hungry to explore the meaning of their imperfect lives. I strive for truth over perfection in my work. Hurt over anger. Emotional clarity over spectacle. I work mostly with new plays, at times in deep collaboration with the writer, and am most engaged by art that pushes past social and emotional boundaries. My goal is to continue creating theater that challenges the perceptions that we have about the people and the world around us, and explores the complexities of both my personal relationship with life and my relationship with America as a Black American. To steal from Dr. Cornel West, I come from the tradition of Black Soul Stirrers. I have never been concerned with audiences “liking” my work as a director. Like it or hate it, what matters to me if that the audience was affected. Any production that does not contain the capacity to move the human spirit has failed to live up to its promise.
