A Note from the Playwright, Joan Beber:
Dear Jane is my most meaningful play. About me and my identical twin, She died ten years ago. We adored and hated and adored each other. She was first born and first to die. She was everything to me.
She teaches me how to live and how to die.
I always think: what would Jane do or say.
