"Angels was one of the most pivotal plays I have done. It reignited my passion for theatre and married it with a journey through queer history. Learning about the AIDS crisis that swept the western L-mostly G-BTQ world through the lens of my character took my understand of the epidemic to new levels of empathy. It inspired an authentic courage that was needed to face the torturous realities of the time."
