WHY "A WOUND IN TIME"?

Although I am an American of African descent (aka multi-ethnic) I never wanted to write a so-called "Black play" but always wanted to write a play about PEOPLE who "happened" to be of a given ethnic group. Therefore "A Wound In Time" has characters from diverse ethnic, social, cultural, religious, and sexually oriented groups. It also deals with the social issues that arise in diversity. "A Wound In Time" is political in that sense, and it is high drama in the sense of the Greek Tragedy.
