Please tell us what the play “Georgia” is about?
Georgia is a love story. A complicated love story. I think everyone can relate to having
an attraction, whether it’s to another person, an idea or an object that goes against
everything we know or think that we know. Georgia speaks to those impulses we have
that defy all logic.
What inspired you to write “Georgia”?
I am really intrigued by the idea of perspective. The play in itself is a search for truth.

experience of truth manipulation not only symbolically, but visually and physically as
What do you hope the audience comes away with after seeing the
I hope that Georgia helps people to see the world more clearly.
What are the challenges in doing a production of this style?
I have to learn lines for 4 different characters and have
to give each character their own traits and personalities. One of the biggest tasks in
rehearsal was making the conversations/interactions between characters come across as
such. There’s no one else on stage but me, so I have no one to
help pick me recover if I mess up a line. I have to be perfect to get this story across.
What are you plans for the performance after the dates at the Nuyorican Cafe in New York City?
Yes, we plan to continue performing on different stages in the city, and Georgia is going
on a college tour to various cities starting at the end of March.
