Play — "Speed Killed My Cousin"

The story of a young, African-American, woman soldier of the Iraq war, and her struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The play takes place in a hummer, as the
main character is driving down the L.I.E. highway in New York. As she struggles with flashbacks and memories, she tries to talk with her father about his experience in the
Vietnam war, and her cousin a Vietnam veteran who died in car crash shortly after his return. She also remembers the women she left behind in Iraq, some of whom did not
survive. Memories and scenes unfold before her, and in the rear-view mirror, as shes driving. Ultimately she must decide whether or not let go of the wheel, as her cousin did, or to choose life.
