It Takes a Village to Raise a Play

I wanted to write a play about political apathy. In the Fall of 2011, I had just started working on my MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Guelph. I was taking a class from the extraordinary playwright Judith Thompson and we students had to write a full-length play in a matter of months. Judith is a playwright who writes very instinctually, viscerally, and she encourages her students to let the writing flow.  I had no choice but to jump into the writing pool and get wet.
