I have the luxurious privilege of having a full production of my play, THE UNLIKELY ASCENT OF SYBIL STEVENS, opening Feb 6th at the Secret Theatre. I had a workshop of the play there last year through the New Voices project, and I’m so proud and honored to have been chosen as the first New Voices play to reach full production.
Tickets are on sale and information is below.

Sybil Stevens, a Chicago-based flight attendant, finds her life completely changed when she is the sole survivor of a devastating plane crash. Sybil, still suffering physical and emotional ramifications from the crash, agrees to do a talk show at the urging of her young, publicity hungry nephew. When Joe, the man who saved her life, makes a surprise visit to Chicago, Sybil finds herself having to deal with the unexpected aftereffects of both the crash and her newfound fame. Can she survive being a survivor?
