Artistic Statement

My goal as a playwright is to bring big questions to the stage, and to challenge an educated audience on their belief system. In particular I want to question our culture’s faith in rationalism, mathematics, and science generally, which in my view has become dogmatic and unquestioned to the extent that it resembles a new kind of religion. I have spent many years studying the history and philosophy of science, and Western thought generally, with a focus on the works of William Barrett, Henri Bergson, René Guénon, and Alfred North Whitehead. I feel it is time for these potentially explosive ideas, which so far have escaped the general public’s consciousness, to make their way to the stage.
