The Ghosts We Knew
Access changed 8/3/17.
Stories are the fastest way to communicate with a person. As a society, we respond much better to stories than simple facts. As I studied theatre, I came to learn this more and more and wanted to be deeply involved in the story crafting process, so I decided to write a play for my thesis. It is a story about a young woman, Anna, who struggles with the loss of both her parents and cannot move forward out of her grief. This grief turns her bitter, insane, and ultimately costs her a job and relationships. Drawing on my studies of great books, films, and plays, I wrote a story that hopefully helps those grieving realize that, while the pain is very real, there is hope to be found.
