chats with playwright Jacqueline Lawton
about chandra’s role in her new play,
The Hampton Years.
“Despite having seen and been a part of quite a bit of theatre by that early age, it was the first time I saw people who looked and talked and acted like the people I knew and grew up with and faced problems that seemed visceral and contemporary to me. It was the show that gave me the gust to say aloud that i, my voice, and the stories of people who I cherish belong on the stage too.” ~ chandra
