About working with BAD Company:
"I was drawn to BAD Company based on the serious and relevant issues they have addressed in their previous plays and the talented people, having worked with some of their actors on other productions. Since joining, I have been overwhelmed with the welcoming and caring nature of the company and the calibre of everyone involved and have had a fantastic time. It is amazing how much we laugh while working hard at rehearsals. I hope this is the first of many productions I'll be working on with BADCo!"
