Today’s guest is Lane Flores. He is a playwright and actor living in Chicago but originally from Dallas, Texas. Lane lost his mother when he was 12, just as she was telling him to go “find his tribe and his people” in the arts, ultimately giving him his first real sense of community and belonging. In this episode, we learn that sometimes your mom can leave you and your sister alone in the graveyard and it’s still one of your favorite memories, but that you will always wish you had more memories, when you lose your mom at a young age. This is a dark fairy tale...but full of love, and a Greek God or two.
