Two estranged sisters must face each other for the first time in a year — on the 6-minute ride to their deceased brother’s memorial.

Director Vision for ‘En Route’

En Route was emotionally ambitious, so when we started rehearsals I held back a little to watch for where each actor’s point of entry was. The goal was to slowly grow organically from here. I love characters that have layers, and though I’d occasionally put up guard rails, or we’d improv over an emotional hump, our process of working allowed for surprise, complexity and nuance. It was so satisfying for all of us.

We had a great time working together, and at the end of the day we felt we had created something beautiful.
