“I was among the freshmen students you performed for today. I just wanted to let you know that “The Script” really moved me and touched me in a way I didn’t expect. Your show was such a breath of fresh air. The characters, situations, and emotions were so realistic, at times I forgot I was watching a one-man show. In a time where it’s harder to reach younger generations, and even harder to have a conversation on all of the many things you touched on in your show, you succeeded in such a magnificent way.
I grew up in a household where there was domestic violence and a lot of toxic masculinity. I’ve seen that toxicity in my peers. As a young woman now somewhat fearful of living alone and being independent at college, and also as a feminist, it means so much to see a guy who gets it and not only wants to have these tough conversations, but is very willing to start them as well. Art is so powerful and you use it beautifully and to make a much needed change.
Thank you so much Tim. You have inspired me to keep creating and thinking, have hope, and ask for help.”
