After directing and producing a forty-five minute evening of feminist theater during fall of 1992, I needed to reflect on the project and what it meant to me. In the reflection paper I take the reader along on my "feminist journey" and discuss how my original idea of directing a short play was transformed into an project that connected many different levels of my experience as a woman and a college student. The production was, ultimately, symbolic of the spiritual journey that I believe many women take as a part of discovering their true natures. The production material (prompt script, light plot, ground plan, etc.) should enable the reader to gain a clearer understanding of the more technical elements of the production.
