"One of my new favorites from Carl Stillitano! This play tackles some very real and current issues regarding Big Pharma and Big Brother in American society today. Again, Carl brings monumental, relevant, social issues to the table in a creative, wildly entertaining and thought-provoking manner. Labeled with a mental illness, Sinatra struggles to break free of AI reign and government issued medication to find a new life of freedom and independent thinking. It seems so easy these days for the medical industry to assign a label, dispense medication and send a patient on their way. Why are people not being treated like human beings? Why are we not offered any other solutions before being written a prescription? And once these people are labeled especially children, most create a new identity from it. As if something is “not normal” about them. I would think this automatically lowers self-esteem, causing more dependence on a drug to make them feel better. 


As a parent I’m already in fear of my child having access to way to much information. Information that can be harmful to them, or they are simply not ready for. The thought of AI getting into our children’s heads to persuade they’re thinking, is more than a terrifying thought, it’s a reality. AI is here. It seems harmless to ask Siri or Alexa, a slew of Intriguing questions, but to what end? I just love how this play depicts humanity versus AI. I love how vulnerable Sinatra‘s character is in wanting to break free, but also being frightened to do so. I’m looking forward to seeing this one in the theater"

Personal Motovations

In 2017, when I first learned about Amazon's ambitions to prescribe and deliver pharmaceuticals, I sensed that this topic would eventually find its way into my writing. That day finally arrived on March 20, 2020, coinciding with the onset of the Covid pandemic. Over the following 90 days, I dedicated myself to the task, exploring and documenting the implications of Amazon's venture into the pharmaceutical industry.
