“When I wrote this little play in 2013, I never thought it would grow to mean so much to me. Amy McDaniel and Marian Ward King, with the direction of Ken Parrish, hit it out of the park! I am also grateful to the judges who had a difficult task choosing from eight wonderful plays. All the playwrights are winners!”
