On the edge—of freedom, madness, understanding, memory, insight. Gil Adamson gives us a heroine on the run, Sidura Ludwig a girl growing toward her freedom. Jim Nason’s characters weigh memory against experience, while Brian Henderson takes us into an unraveling mind. Shauna Singh Baldwin and Dave Margoshes tip their characters out of comfort and into challenge. Great writing takes a character right to that edge, lets us all feel what could unfold. .
