From Chisa:

F*CK WIT

I'm getting a little tired of it. I've been seeing a lot of plays and TV shows with hyper-articulate characters who always know exactly what they want and how they feel and why they do what they do. They verbalize it all with syntactically complex sentences -- complete with references to recent political scandals. I'm like, "Give me a frickin' break." I've always been far more interested in watching characters struggle with not knowing the first thing about themselves, their motivations or desires. I'm riveted by the herculean effort it takes them just to function and interact in socially acceptable ways with others.

If you would like to explore the Art of Inarticulation (that's a word now), you should take this workshop.

Chisa Hutchinson earned a B.A. from Vassar College and an M.F.A from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Her plays, which include Dirt Rich, She Like Girls, This Is Not the Play, Sex on Sunday, Tunde’s Trumpet, The Subject, Mama’s Gonna Buy You, Somebody’s Daughter, Alondra Was Here and Dead & Breathing have been presented by such venues as the Lark Play Development Center, SummerStage, Atlantic Theater Co, Working Man’s Clothes Productions, the BE Company, Partial Comfort Productions, Mad Dog Theater Co. and the Wild Project. In addition to having been a Dramatists Guild Fellow, a Lark Fellow, a resident at the William Inge Center for the Arts, a New York NeoFuturist and a finalist for the highly coveted PONY Fellowship, she’s won a GLAAD Award, the John Golden Award for Excellence in Playwriting, a Lilly Award, and a New York Innovative Theatre Award. A recent foray into screenwriting won her Best Narrative Short at the Sonoma International Film Festival, so she's really looking forward to seeing how her first feature film, an adaptation of her play, The Subject, turns out. Having just finished a contract with the Blue Man Group, Chisa now writes delightfully hokey copy for a retail company geared toward sexagenarians in Boca Raton. She is thrilled nearly to the point of incontinence to be a New Dramatist. www.chisahutchinson.com.
