In the Goodman Theatre’s latest production a teenager named Iris undergoes a traumatic experience just as she’s dreaming about college and a better life. That turning point is just one of three moments in her life that make up The Trinity River Plays. Regina Taylor is the playwright behind the new production. She says she’s been undergoing her own personal turning point.
