I got seriously into flower gardening after working in a garden center for four years. Like Tania, I’m a ‘native gardener’, and along with roses, peonies, lilies, and lilacs, I do plant weeds: Milkweed, Joe Pye weed, gooseneck, mullein, mallows, and many more perennials; plus herbs: mint, thyme, oregano, bergamot, bee and lemon balm. As long as it’s fragrant/thrives on its own, it can stay in my yard.
What would you do if you found out your neighbor had been using two feet of your property?
If I discovered that a neighbor had ‘acquired' some part of my land, I’d certainly be quick to correct that. Boundaries are necessary and legal ownership is important. And yes, I would fight for it if need be, though not physically. I’d call or visit or send a letter first, and I’d get legal backup if it continued.
What do you like most about acting in comedies?
Working in comedy is a tough job, but it’s so rewarding when you hear the audience laugh. I grew up loving Burns and Allen, I Love Lucy, and the Carol Burnett Show, and it gave me such a happy heart! That’s a great feeling and I hope I can spread a little of that joy to every audience member.
What do you like most about this play?
Each character in this play is a good, decent, civilized person. Yet despite that, each is subtly ingrained with ‘isms’: ageism, classism, racism, sexism, that they have to confront and overcome. That’s what I like most about this play.
