Author & Playwright
Nobody likes a thief, yet we let him move in and pay him rent. We may have started off protecting our goods, but the thief is relentless. He starts by sharing unsolicited opinions. He continues by lacing his destructive criticisms in his definition of facts and truths. He cleverly cloaks his jealousy in a language that he believes will make you better. Before long he has penetrated your thoughts and actions. With his work nearly complete he cups your face and reminds you of your past failures and mistakes. His work is now done. You no longer need him to steal from you because you have begun to do the job for him. A thief is always active. He comes in many forms, but in the end, he takes on your sight, body, and mind if you let him.
This work has been with me for several seasons. For each time that I thought that I could let my characters out a thief grabbed my heart, mind, and spirit. There were times that I fought him and other times that I surrendered because it was easier to hide from the kaleidoscope of memory that he knew would hunt me. Faceless Value is a collection of one-person shows that examines the beauty, depth, and pains of life. It is a call for love and forgiveness too override hate and depression.
