Jaya Z. Powell: Doctor


Tell us about yourself.

I am a research student at Sophia University. It's a very challenging task to do research nonstop, and I'm in my own head a lot of the time. I'm looking forward to express myself emotionally through this play, as well as stepping into "someone else's" headspace for a little while.


Why do you think people should come see the show?

I think the play delves deeply into human nature, and shows us what can happen when we let our own selfish interests cloud our better judgment. I think it's a lesson that many people would do good to be reminded of.
