For many moons, women have been pitted against each other in a societal Battle Royale over status and men. As time passed, these battles began to include money, jobs, and internet wars over the “right” way to be a parent. It’s only in recent years that women have worked toward bucking that piece of the patriarchy and unifying with other women. It’s no accident that the #MeToo movement is happening now, in this shifting sensibility. Now the question is how can women uplift each other and how do we teach young women not to see each other as competition? Finding herself suddenly sick, 40-something Kelly’s asks Samantha to move into her house, but this is just the beginning… or the end. Told in reverse chronology, STEPS TO HOME tells the story of Kelly and Samantha’s decades old friendship and – despite hardships and relationships - how two people so vastly different could come to be the most important person in each other’s lives.

When KELLY TORRANCE ventures into the basement lair of her intellectually gifted but socially challenged brother BRUCE, she discovers he has been locked in a multi-subject Facebook argument, or as he calls it, a "brick-tossing free-for-all", for the better part of two days. Soon she discovers that he is so deeply engrossed, that it may be impossible to pull him away – no matter what the cost.

THE NUMBENING by David Don Miller

The Numbening is a story about a young man who confesses to his teacher that he is about to commit a mass shooting. A year and a half removed from Sandy Hook, without another high profile massacre in the interim, I naively but hopefully wondered if it was already a dated story. I had thought, ignorantly, that the slaughter of twenty first graders would be the tipping point; that somehow the culture collectively cried “enough,” and that the magnitude of this horrific event would cosmically (magically) stop another one from happening. Five days later, a young man in Charleston massacred some people who had invited him into their church to pray with them. Since then, Orlando, Las Vegas, and Parkland are merely signposts on a timeline of more atrocities. Please join me at 7pm on May 3rd to watch the Numbening, performed by Joe Delafield, Jane Kotlyar and Julianne Lavallee at HB Playwrights Theatre, and participate in a post-show discussion to assist me in its further development. The ideas on how to expand it, three years later, have unfortunately been abundantly fueled by the harshest of realities, and this is my way of contributing to the conversation. When the media circus dies, the conversation shouldn’t die too.
