Mashuq Mushtaq Deen
I write from the lens of liminality, the "in-between" space. Each of my plays is structurally different from the last. My first professionally produced play, DRAW THE CIRCLE, was an autobiographical solo play told from the point of view of everyone except me. FLOOD is an absurdist play. THE SPEED OF LIFE is a meditation or a prayer, perhaps.
