We’re Not Playing: Two Plays by Jaisey Bates

Not PlayingJaisey Bates is a beautiful writer, and her words (even in correspondence) feel as though they are floating on the page. 

That’s saying something in a time where many, many people have allowed their language to become crudely shaped weapons, hurtled carelessly at ‘opponents’, without a care as to how destructive such puss-filled vitriol clogging our air truly is.

So instead, I share with you a writer whose language is offered with a hope for healing.  And I encourage you to visit the-peoplehood.com to learn more about Jaisey and her inspiring theatre collective.

“Why these words.

This summer’s waking horror dreams led to the following gathering of words as one playwright’s quest to find a way to encourage mutual healing and hope and contribute toward our working together.  That we may build with our words together a shelter from such storms.  That we may write together a new story worthy of our children and our children’s children.  That we may learn in the precious few moments we are gifted to walk together in beauty this beloved ground.

Why these words in this way.

Each of us is composed of many voices, inside, outside.  We read our world and each other through the ever-changing, ever-evolving synapses and interstitial spaces of all these voices.  So nontraditionally multicasting words and voices is a way this writer tries to bring into play variable perspectives and the resultant textures, dimensions, tensions and interplay dialogue of differences that write who we are and our world.

Join the journey.”
