[Sarah] is complex. I like that she is very engaged in her life. She’s not a passive person, and I think she battles with what she’s doing with her life on a daily basis. [The play] talks about having a vocation, and what that means. When you have a calling toward something, whether it’s the arts or journalism or politics or medicine, what does that do to the rest of your life?” —Linney in a Q&A interview with Broadway.com, 1/10
