The most amazing thing about the truly astounding process of bringing this play to life has been the opportunity to engage with people in conversation about characters and circumstances that I care deeply about. I’m so grateful for all of the comments and positive reviews that Time Is On Our Side has gotten, but this conversation critique is especially moving. At the end of the day, I just want to make art that sparks conversations, that touches people, that resonates. I’m so very thankful to the people behind this blog for taking the time to engage with the play on an emotional, artistic and intellectual level. I’ve re-blogged their thoughts below but I encourage you to check out Bonaly’s site for other great conversations on local theatre.
