Who I Am

Melissa Attebery

I create people driven plays for people with an edge, because there is no room for a lack of passion. Your personal journey is absurd and hilarious and tragic—so is mine. We need to dare ourselves to show our audience these things so they can see their own reflections in us. We’re all on a different path, but we all want the same things: love, success, happiness, acceptance. We can offer that if we collaborate from beginning to end. For every heartbreaking and challenging contribution we accept or make, we need to encourage our collaborators to do the same, because every one of those offerings is an opportunity for the work and for our selves to gain greater dimension. Only then will our audience know that it is not alone. There is no room to not take a risk, because, there is no time to waste.
