Thanks to the many people who helped this piece get where it is, but specifically:

RJ Peters – without who I would have none of the technical knowledge required to put together a show like this

Christopher Weddell – my dramaturge on the original draft of this show in 2023

And my wonderful arts community who gave so much to help this show land on it’s feet.
