WELGA: Lessons from a Full-Length

Honestly, there’s so much to say about this play and the process it took to get this from page to stage that I don’t know where to begin. But this is my post-mort to myself so I better make this count!  Lessons Okay, these are some of the general lessons that I’ve learned on my…

Underneath the Bodhi Tree

Well, semester numero 3 is over at sfsu and I’m glad to say that I survived it. I wound up taking 15 units and after promising myself that is the last time I try taking that many units (along with having a part-time job w/ an internship), it’s looking like I’ll be signing up for…
