Writing Full Length Plays is a journey of a full commitment to the story at hand. A full-length play starts off as a simple idea, culminating in a myriad of various concepts brought together to instill one story.
The journey for all characters included in each story takes a journey of discovery and development. Finding the journey of each character, developing the overarching story and bringing everything to a conclusion demands great powers of observation, commitment, and knowledge of the craft of writing. My goal is to bring the audience a thought-provoking and an entertaining couple of hours in each script.

Whilst his father is never home to behold a view on leadership and with his mother abstaining from the truth, David struggles to hold his own place in the world. His circle of friends comforts him; however, his longing for acceptance from his family remains poignant.
