Thank you to the Program in Theater, the Lewis Center, and the Fund for Irish Studies - in particular Professors Paul Muldoon and Michael Cadden - for your unflagging, attentive generosity in making my work on this, my senior creative thesis, possible.
To Tim Vasen for groundedness, zest, and a brilliant four years of work together: how lucky I am.
To Zack Wieder, for sharing my Beckett-fervor, and for keeping Win from talking alone in the wilderness.
To my friends, my family, and all my close ones, for your laughter and bolstering love. Your strength and gentle humor have allowed me to brave the blue, still keeping the old joke in sight. You know who you are, reading this - my love and gratitude.
