Sculpting the Particular:
AMINA HENRY with Joshua Young
Amina Henry writes plays that are big question marks. Plays that don’t have the answers but instead dig deep into the intricacies of human contradiction. She finds sustenance in the parts of humanity that are simultaneously vexing and enticing. There’s something valiant and audacious about the questions Amina asks in her work. And there’s something special about a playwright asking you to think something rather than telling you to think something.
