"I strive to do work that can connect the gaps of understanding in our society through human vulnerability on stage. To instill empathy for those we may never have otherwise is theatre's greatest ability and I do work that lives in character driven storytelling, brutal honesty, and a touch of whimsy."

India is an emerging director and recent graduate of The New School for Drama, MFA Directing program. She also was an Asolo Repertory Theatre Directing Fellow for the 2018-2019 season.
