Alec Duffy and Jordana De La Cruz
with Mei Ann Teo

The theater has always been a sanctuary for me: a safe place for communal gathering where, through enacted stories, we are offered possibilities for contemplation and change. A place where we wrestle with the complexities and nuances of our humanity. A place to revel and celebrate life. On March 12th, due to the global pandemic, many of our theaters closed. Now, ghost lights illuminate empty stages, props lay like abandoned lovers, and costumes hang sad and still.
