Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Clown Baby: The Play, the Screenplay, and Reflections on the Process
by Wilhoite, Kathleen, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 47; 10784116
Abstract (Summary)

Never once in my thirty-plus years that I’ve been acting professionally, did I ever think I’d find the inspiration to write a full-length play in the middle of an exercise in clown class. Here is how I stumbled upon the world of the clown, whom I’d written it about, and why I was compelled to bring this particular story to life. This project is a reflection of how transformative my graduate school experience has been for me, both as an actress and as a writer.
