The first story I am telling this year involves fighting the stereotype that women are complete only if they are married and/or have children. In “If/Then,” alternating storylines acknowledge that there are many paths to personal fulfillment. 

Later I will be coming back to a Shakespeare play I directed a few years ago. I will be looking at it through the lens of the #MeToo movement. My intent is to ensure that the women in this version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” defy societal expectations that they are to be silent about their own body, power, and place. 

Finally, with “Marjorie Prime,” I will be addressing the issues of forgiveness and isolation that women self-inflict in their attempts to be a perfect spouse/child/parent. It is set in the not-too-distant future, when technology has more impact than perhaps we’re ready to accept.
