Quotes & Highlights

Stanton’s skill in balancing a profoundly personal tale with classic underpinnings ultimately hints at the evocative idea that all our lives are full of events and incidents that touch on the mythic and the timeless.” —LA Weekly


Blank is a world-premiere play, written by and starring Brian Stanton, co-founder of the Lone Star Ensemble. Blank is the heartwarming and humorous story of Stanton’s courageous and difficult journey to connect with his birth mother on the urging of his adoptive mother. Stanton intends the play to promote discussion and awareness of adoptee issues.
