Yes, this is a new episodic play. Clumsy, bold, and trying to get it right. Here to organize the out of order.
Or should we just let it be?
This is about growing up. Girlhood and womanhood. What exactly is the difference?
It’s always getting in the damn way.
Moments from the past, present, and future. Different places, smells, and tastes.
Gusts of wind that share wisdom,
people who stir you up, and events that mold and fold and eventually break you open.
I guess we could say this is the origin story of a GIRL.
And it all begins at sea.
We always want to be by the sea.
Because this is where we all started.
