"I had taken a break from theatre to concentrate on massive short fiction writing and just as I was getting ready to return, COVID hit, shutting everything down. So, I decided to lean into the new technology and mount these plays virtually, which proved quite a challenge. Luckily I was joined by a fabulous group of ten actors, a wonderful director and a gifted editor, and together we tried our best to create a show that would play well in the intimacy of one's living room. I very much enjoyed the exploration and the collaboration and I look forward to continuing Crossroads as a series."
