Happy May everyone!
Some exciting news on my end:
-My play THE WORST MOTHER IN THE WORLD was a semi-finalist for the 2017 O'Neill National Playwrights Conference!
-I was thrilled to write a monologue for the lovely Kristen Krak for Mariah MacCarthy's fabulous festival o'Feminism PUSSYFEST V (Caps Lock Theater) at the Access Theater on April 20th. Also, my first time back at the Access since PAPER CRANES opened back in 2011!
-Because I am a lucky gal, I got to go back to the Access to hear a full length reading of my NPC Finalist play THE OCEAN THOUGHT NOTHING, as part of Team Awesome Robot's That True Reading Series on April 25th. Many thanks to Brittany Ayers for her skillful direction. Despite it having done well in the submissions game, this was my first time hearing the play in front of an audience and it was really a joyful experience. Here's hoping for a future life!
-My short play THERE'S ALWAYS A CHOICE was featured in NYMadness - FUTURE BABY MADNESS! - at the Kraine Theater on April 30th. Many thanks to Judith Leora for asking me to be a part of it, Michele Travis for her great direction, and Stacey Raymond and Daniela Thome for their kick ass acting. Was a fun experience and I hope I can come back to play with these folks again.
-And, to round things out, I had the first public reading of my new play WENDY AND THE NECKBEARDS at Jimmy's 43 in the East Village, directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker. It was a blast and I'm really excited about this play. I hope I get to share it further really soon.
