I write and I participate in theater to make both an emotional and a social impact. I believe in collaboration, craft, caring, honesty, and respect for my fellow artists and our audiences. I will write the truth as I understand it. I will not hold back. I will write about what it means to be a human, which means I will write about foibles, fears, hopes, passions, dreams, and fears -- and whatever else it takes to understand our shared humanity. I will examine the effects of governmental, economic and social injustice on us; our capacity to take meaningful actions against the status quo; and the consequences we face when take those actions. Sometimes I will write dramas, sometimes I will write comedies; but, I promise that I will always write the truth as I understand it.

"The one thing I brought to this business is speaking the absolute truth. Say only what you really feel about the subject. And that’s too bad if they don’t like it. That’s what comedy is. It’s you telling the truth as you see it."
"If you fear making anyone mad, then you ultimately probe for the lowest common denominator of human achievement."
"If you can't annoy somebody with what you write, I think there's no point in writing."
