Abstract: Theatre , at its core , is inherently an inquisition into human nature and life itself. Through its abstractions , a mirror world may be created through which an audience may analyze behavior , motivation , and consequence in a way that it is not afforded in everyday life. Because of this mimesis , plays are a useful vehicle through which complex , universal questions may be asked. Not only this , but plays become an important mirror to the artist's own soul. A writer uses his , her , or their own psyche's ether to precipitate a physical manifestation of emotion , experience , and memory. While this project originally aimed to explore the underbelly of America and the indigestible aspects of Americana , it became an exploration into the self , the self within the context of the world , and the self becoming the self.
