Why do you do what you do?
As an artist, she hopes to gain liberty from ‘Sugar, Honey, Ice, Tea’. Domestic Abuse is a taboo. Many people have been through/know someone who has been through domestic abuse, and Teddy wants to show her audience that it happens more often than they think. Teddy wants to make her audience think about their lives and how they can make small changes to ensure the safety of those around them. She wants women to read her monologues, hear that they are not alone, and hopefully find some catharsis or strength through watching the pieces.
