 "The play shows the strength that a bond such as Kenny and Diane’s can be…both a gift and a burden. I loved Kenny & Diane because of the fluidity of the writing mixed with the plot of the story making it such a cohesive read!"

Personal Motovations

It all began with my own story. Following a profound experience watching "Angels in America" on Broadway in 1994, I was moved to immediately draft the beginnings of what would become "Kenny and Diane." The emotional intensity of the process was so overwhelming that I set it aside until 2001. However, it wasn't until 2016 that I finally found the resolve to return to it and complete the journey I had started so many years before.
