What attracted you to direct this script in particular for WIW? What frightens you most in this piece? What resonates most with you?I think the relationship between the sisters is what initially drew me in. I have a sister, a year younger than I am, and though we're very close, we're very different. And I understand how family obligation and personal perceptions of the value of the other siblings' contributions to the family can create a sense of division in the relationship and affects family dynamic. What keeps me interested in the story is the notion that one critical decision can have a staggering affect on the outcome of not only that moment, but also your life. The idea that you can get caught in the momentum of that decision, for better or worse, and find yourself drowning in the continued consequences of it is scary to me.
