Ms. Gilbert's work draws on stories of violence, sexual taboos and power dynamics in intimate relationships. A two-month drama program with inmates at Bayview Women’s Correctional Facility led Ms. Gilbert to write, co-produce and star in the film, What's Left. She ran the first drama therapy group inside the notorious Kirby Forensic Psychiatric Center for the criminally insane, which strongly influences the focus of empathy in her work. Ms. Gilbert has a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
