Heaven At Night


Heaven at Night is anything that is currently inside you or rather your unconsciousness. This idea cannot be brought into existence because of lack of resources, experience or simply overall knowledge that has yet to be obtained. For me Heaven at Night is a play that I cannot write because I do not have enough knowledge as a playwright to write it. As a result, my mentor and I decided to start researching myself as a playwright. We did this by focusing on African American theater from the 1850’s to present day. Specifically, we focused on playwrights who changed the craft in an important way. In addition, I wrote four ten-minute plays. Each piece was influenced by something I read.
