A while back, I wrote a play.
I was in conversations with a theater company about producing this play when the world shut down. A lot of things happened after that. You know what I’m talking about.
Now, theaters wants to produce plays with a message, plays that say something about the world we live in. That’s fine. That’s good. That’s important.
However, I recognize, as a storyteller, the message is secondary. Yes, every story has a message. That’s how stories work. That’s what stories do.
But at the same time, my job isn’t that of a messenger.
My job is to tell you a story.
Everything else is secondary.
