    I admire Ruby Rae Spiegel’s work as
    a voice for young women. I go to Arizona State University and this play was
    performed just last semester. The dynamics between Amy and Esther are
    mesmerizing. Amy knows that Esther is truly the only person looking out for her
    best interests but it is hard for her to make their relationship public. I
    believe this tension is a universal one. The one person that cares for you are
    often the ones most pushed aside.

    In class, we often discuss how
    collaborative the theater world can be, but in writing it seems to be a process
    that requires total solitary until the drafting process begins. I find when I
    am writing I have to keep every draft because later on I realize some of the
    changes I make to my original work ends up being worse, even though at the time
    I believe it to be so much better.
