For my Departmental Honors Thesis Project, I wrote a one-act play entitled That?s Why. My desire to write a play was derived from much more than the fact that I am a Texas Christian University theatre major. My interest in writing is a result of my childhood and eagerness to create theatre with a purpose. The play discussed in this reflection deals with issues such as hazing, mental health, grief, and perspective. During this Departmental Honors Thesis Project Reflection, I discuss my playwriting experience within the topics of Preparation, Process, Plot, Personal, and Production. Within these subjects, I discuss in-depth my motivation for writing, multiple character analysis, and the future plans for That?s Why.
