  • Verdant Lawns
    17 Apr. 2021
    The community of national & local readers for the 44th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival enthusiastically recommends VERDANT LAWNS as a Semi-Finalist at Playwrights Foundation out of 755 plays. We were deeply moved by the artistic merits as it navigates racism, gun violence, neighborhood rules, and exploitation of black trauma. We were compelled by the play's promise through dialogue which resonated as naturalistic and regionally specific, balancing tension as the play's twists with character motivations and moments of family love. We hope this play is widely read, finds dedicated collaborators to support further development, and moves swiftly towards production. #BAPF2021

We were deeply moved by the artistic merits in this blending of dramatic poetic styles of lyricism, mirage, allegories, quests, and masks. We were deeply moved by the play's promise as it explores military service, addiction, identity, culture, grief, and parenthood, questioning what it means to love while the world is in crisis. We hope this play is widely read, finds dedicated collaborators, and moves swiftly towards production. #BAPF2021

    17 Apr. 2021
    The community of national & local readers for the 44th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival enthusiastically recommends SUMO as a Semi-Finalist at Playwrights Foundation out of 755 plays. We were deeply moved by the artistic merits of the distinctive physicality, poetic resonance, and beautifully sparse dialogue as the characters have a strong relationship to each other. We were compelled by the play's promise as it deals with demanding masculinity in this sport with characters and male relationships not often represented on stage. We hope this play is widely read, finds dedicated collaborators, and moves swiftly towards production. #BAPF2021

We were deeply moved by the representational realities of homelessness, surrounded by politicians and artists who do nothing to help, or create more harm.

    The community of national & local readers for the 44th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival enthusiastically recommends ALAMAR as a Semi-Finalist at Playwrights Foundation out of 755 plays. We were deeply moved by the artistic merits of these intertwining stories of different generations of Cubans. We were compelled by the play's promise as it explores mental health, identity, death & grief in a big, comprehensive fresco whirlwind. Our readers felt connected to these characters and enjoyed the use of "Ceci Slays" as a through-line. We hope this play is widely read, finds dedicated collaborators, and moves swiftly towards production. #BAPF2021
