Rose Troche

Candle in the wind

I have yet to see a production by this company, which focuses on new Irish drama, that I've really liked; and the kicker is I'm Irish.

Female, Muslim and funny

"I was taken to a virgin carnival by born again Christians. That is so cheating. In Islam, you get only one chance, and that's it."
