Playwright’s Perspective: Wives

Most of my plays end with a question. In a way, this is an admission of guilt. It is me, the playwright, admitting that I do not have the answers to the questions I pose.

The American Voice: Sisterhood of Delight

The Nahargarh Fort rests on a ridge overlooking the city of Jaipur, India.

Backstory: Laugh of the Wives
