Chloé Duvant on her play:
This was written a day after Donald Trump was elected president, where I was trying to figure out what my purpose was within this world, despite the fact I no longer felt welcomed here. In the end, I figured my purpose was to create art, and I should not shy away or be intimidated by what is happening in this country, or in the world; instead, I should use my art to speak on topics, and make myself heard.
