  • Hi Anita, I’m a Pastor in a South Asian Church. My wife has been involved in theatre for some time and it is one of the reasons we came to Chicago. Anyway, we are always looking for things that can pick up Christian Themes with slice of life situations. This one particularly caught my eye in that I think it may address some human dignity and sanctity of life issues. I’d love to speak with you more about this play, your theatre experience and even what it was like choosing the arts as a career. Thanks for your time. I hope to hear from you soon.
