Kate from Taming of the Shrew
Favorite Shakespeare quote:
“Oh life! Disease hath spread to my whole self. My arms, my legs, my hands. They wreak of blood! Oh life! Be gone you spots! Oh spots be gone! The spots remain, the blood remains on me. My skin hath worn away. For I cannot stop itching at these damnèd spots.” – Lady Macbeth, Macbeth, Act 5 Sc 5

In the Blood – Suzan-Lori Parks
Favorite asc moment:
Though this is my first year at ASC, I am a Virginia-native, and though I am from a different part of the state, this will be my first summer home in 5 years, and I’m very excited to spend it in an area I’ve never visited before.
