There's an elephant in the garden, and it's my daughter. Haley got the part of Claudia in the mainstage production at Epoch Arts in East Hampton, CT. Claudia is an elephant, one of an array of characters from corporate to clown in a unique story that will be weaved by 17 or so teens for themselves...and incidentally for an audience as well. This play speaks volumes. It captures parts of us, challenges us, and hopefully changes us all, if even just a little bit.
Today I am thankful for laughter; for tears; for teens who cringe and even cry at the maltreatment of others, even when it's just when reading through a script for the first time; for inspired words; for challenges; for gardens; for hope; and for very little, but very important things.
