Off West Broadway Theatre Company was instrumental in me getting started as an actor. While I was living at The Lamb's Church they began to produce plays in the smaller of their two Off-Broadway theatres. I showed up to help with construction and painting and anything that needed to be done. Before I knew it, David Wesner, their playwright-in-residence, wrote a play about a grad student who was accidentally locked in a mental institution, and I, as a grad student, got to play the lead!
I Dreamed I Was Free tells the story of Quaker abolitionist John Woolman, who spoke against slavery a century before our Civil War.
