Meet The Playwrights of NY SummerFest: Bear Kosik a Man Who Wears Many Hats
In Between Panic and Desire, Mark’s disability benefits are cut, triggering his PTSD. His PTSD was triggered right after he has been discharged from the hospital after having had a psychotic episode 11 days earlier. As 13 scenes unfold, we learn his older sister Caridad has picked up younger sister Esperanza. While waiting for Dr. Greene to make a house call, they talk about their family’s quirks and history. Dr. Greene arrives and tells Mark he has no sisters. Except he does. Where does the reality lie?
