Mary Kuryla, Writer/Director "Freak Weather"
Joan Scheckel made me a better human being.
By learning to work with actors through Joan Scheckel, you learn to work with yourself, to confront your own weakness, as well as your strengths -- both of which must be faced before you can ask another to face the same in themselves.
If you're willing to trust Joan Scheckel, then she can guide you to the truth. If your writing is going to be any good, then it had better be truthful. Every stitch of writing I've done that gets anywhere near truthful, is always the most dramatic. I wouldn't have gotten close without Joan Scheckel. She's the goods. She's a giant. But I wish I could fit her in my pocket every day when I sit down to write.
Joan makes you brave!
