"The Whole is Greater" by Ann Timmons 

I could not be more pleased and excited to be involved in a reading for the Dramatist Guild. 

Join me for a virtual reading of The Whole is Greater — presented by NYC ONLINE: FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTLIGHTS

Friday, July 10, 2020 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)

The lives of a "motivational guru," a cynical unemployed professor, a corrupt local politician, and a wily Dollar Store cashier intertwine unexpectedly. Comic drama unfolds as definitions of success, matters of justice, and finding your place in the world collide.

Our family was sheltered in place for 100+ days.

And while life has opened up around us - we are still being cautious.  

We stand with our friends and our neighbors - I was incredibly moved by how strong all of our voices are together. There is so much pain and anger and there is so much hope - the call to action is loud, long overdue and necessary.

Most of the men in my family have been in law enforcement or in the military and my heart goes out to the good men and women who do actually serve and protect - many of them are being lumped in with people who should not carry a badge - let alone a gun.

Change is happening and it is long over due.
