ANGIE FARROW

"We've got a lot of issues to deal with. We need to think about global warming and what happens when we run out of oil. There are big, creative problems that we've got to try and solve and I do think that theatre, the arts, those kinds of public forum are a way of bringing people together and getting them to look at these issues. Not always necessarily through cognition, but often through emotion and the connection."

"I thought I’d stay a year or two. But I got caught up in the environment; I love it here. I love the students and I just love the freedom that I have to invent things. I stayed 18 years and I’m still here."
