The Gauntlet

    The Gauntlet by Reina Hardy is hands down the most unique play I have ever had the pleasure of working on. The piece is humorous, action-packed, and invokes thought regarding inner strength and power. I directed The Gauntlet during the Catalyst Festival in London and look forward to working on it again in the future.
