About the Director
Leslee Richards has directed several plays at the Vortex including The Motherf**ker with the Hat, Sex with Strangers, and Macbeth, and at the Adobe Theatre (Pride and Prejudice, Talley's Folly and Rabbit Hole). She said, "This is tremendously challenging play. We are trying to give the audience a picture of how Christopher's brain works and it is a very unusual brain."
