When I received an NEA Playwrighting Grant for my first long play, SIGNS OF LIFE, it changed the entire direction of my creative life. Further NEA grants to my productions and to the theatres that produced them sustained me in ways which cannot be counted.

The NEA is one of the glories of our republic. Now is the time to support it as it should be supported: wholeheartedly and with a quadrupled budget.
