In Thank You for Coming: Play, Driscoll fractures the relationship between what we say and how we move when we say it, lingering in the mutual shadows, gaps, repetitions, stutters and spirals. How does language at once define and reduce our lived experience? How are we at once organized and undone by personal and societal narratives?
