The Walk

A scene from the play ROE, by Lisa Loomer, directed by Vanessa Stalling. Preformed Jan 18 — Feb 23, 2020 in Goodman’s Albert Theatre in Chicago, IL

Immediately after graduating college, I spent the summer interning with the St. Louis City Fire Department in their ride-along program. St. Louis city fire’s work schedule is 24-hour shifts on and 24-hours off. I spent much of that summer working in the busiest engine houses in the city — which meant that the following mornings I was exhausted and ready to sleep — the entire day away.
