After the Play

After the play someone always asks
how much of what I wrote is real—
though sometimes they say true
and I say some or none or all,
knowing they mean was that my life
up there under the lights. Yes,
all that I've imagined is, of course,
my life, but no more real than rain
falling on my hand as I wave to Teddy,
leaning out her window on MacDougal Street,
alive with lights and laughter, or the hot
scent of Mamoun's falafel, and no more true
than yesterday's news, wet and dirty
under our feet. The actors emerge, tired
and happy from creating lives, two hours
of reality, of truth for us and them
each night before we lose ourselves in smoke
and wine at Minetta Tavern, music
so loud we become mimes, abandoning
language, as in the end we must.


Donna’s comedy GOLDEN LADDER (with Amy Redford as Catherine) was produced Off Broadway at the Players Theatre, as was her first play, ANOTHER PARADISE.

GOLDEN LADDER was published in Women Playwrights: The Best Plays of 2002 (Smith & Kraus) and copies are available through YouthPlays (www.youthplays.com).

Her collection of poems, The Woman Who Married Herself, was published in 2010 through Evening Street Press.  Click here for reviews from Midwest Book Review and The Pedestal (PDF format).

She has written 17 full-length plays, a novel, 2 y/a novels (revising one now), and many short stories. Donna lives in an old farmhouse across from a wildlife sanctuary.
