Notes

To say it was an honor to direct The Warriors would be an understatement. This is one of those rare pieces of art that simultaneously examines tragedy and shows us the light breaking through the darkness. Through these words and these characters, we look closely, not so much at the moment of absolute darkness (in this case the Jonesboro school shooting), but the aftermath of those who witnessed its destruction from the front line and and will always live with it.

The Warriors explores how we all handle pain and chaos differently. It gives us hope in the power of human connection. It shows us how a group of artists can grapple with the most earth-shattering moments and find beauty among the rubble.

Thank you Mary Hollis Inboden and Evan Linder for sharing your light with us.
