If we’re doing it the right way. And for others of us, it sometimes means asking if we just make everything worse by existing.

2. Who is your favorite character from your play and why? I like all of them. But I do love the phone in my play. I think I love it because being a millennial, there is this idea that we are always in our phones because we’re vain or selfish.
