…the Darrells, Tims and Jenns of this world hold a special place in my mind. A unique, uncomfortable space that says, 'Damn, that could've been me." Even growing up in America, I think most of us are only two detentions and one dead-end job away from ending up just another failed dreamer with a difficult childhood and lousy luck... I never liked the way those kids dressed, or the music they listened to or the way they talked, so from the beginning they were, in essence, dead to me. This is my attempt at a resurrection -Neil LaBute from Preface to The Distance From Here.
