As a child the end of the school year was a moment of closure; a point of transition, true but a clear ending of something. Neat. Specific. Then moving on.
Thirty years ago we were preparing to graduate from high school. Promise was enormous, but what the hell was I doing? This is one of the central issues of the new play I have written, the one which will be workshopped at Last Frontier.
My high school reunion will be celebrated this June. I always say I won't go, I always do. Inevitably I feel uncomfortable, unsatisfied. This year I can't go, I will be in Alaska. The future trumps the past.
