    • It was actually for a college freshman year playwriting I class assignment where we were supposed to write a multigenerational play. Around the same time my little sister was working on a genealogy project and a good friend told me the story of her grandmother who didn’t know how she got pregnant, and both of those elements made their way into the play as well. Hope this helps!

  1. what do you think the most important element of the play is. What theemes are met to be in the play and what is the plot? Where did you get the inspration to write this play? On a personal basis, what are some intrsting facts or accomplishments you have had? What are some of your professional accomplishements? Thank you! for emily dedinger about Family tree.
