At the heart of all of my plays is a love story.

ALL ABOUT LOVE BY JACQUELINE E LAWTON, 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 06

"I've written about self-hatred within the Black community (Blood-bound and Tongue-tied), the Lebanese war of 2006, CIA interrogation tactics (The Devil's Sweet Water), the Booth family (Mad Breed), homosexuality and Christianity (A Delicate People). 

"Ultimately, I want to tell a story that introduces you to people you may have never met or re-introduces you to an old friend or family member or reflects who you are and what's in your heart."

The unifying theme of all her work, what Lawton's plays are about: love.

She reflects, "At the heart of all of my plays is a love story. For me, love, our ability and capacity to love, is the driving force of life. The story lies in everything that prevents us from loving one another (fear) or leads us to love one another (hope)."
