I'm Deanna Strasse, and I knew from a young age that the theatre was my passion.  The focus has shifted a bit over the years.  I wanted to be an actress.  I wanted to be a director.  I wanted to own a theatre company (I applaud anyone who actually does that.  It takes a special kind of crazy.) In the end, I find that I want to try it all, but my true love is writing.  
My style has been described as "Neil Simon meets Edward Albee" (mostly by me...but now by you!) with wit mixed with the heartbreak and intricacies of relationships.  All relationships.  While romantic stories are lauded, other minglings and chance encounters can give way to important and crucial stories as well.  (I just made up the word "minglings".  Call me Shakespeare now.) These are the stories that I wish to tell...the overlooked stories of everyday happenstance that changes our view and puts new focus in our lives. 
I often tell people that I don't write "big plays".  I write dramas that take place around a table or in the living room (or even on the toilet).  Sometimes the lives we lead have as many minefields (metaphorical or otherwise) as the lives of sailors, warriors, and pirates.  

By becoming a patron, you will not only aid in the realization of my dreams (everybody needs one!) but will also receive special insights and gifts to upcoming events...events that have to do with me BTW.  I don't have any Hamilton tickets for you.  Let's just get that out of the way right now.  

So scroll on down and take a look.
