    SYNCHRONICITY is the winner of the 2016 Salt Lake Acting Company/David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists grant. It is a beautiful and haunting story about trying to make sense of life's inexplicable circumstances. Brynne has an insightful understanding of anxiety, grief, and healing that comes through powerfully in this script. Great, meaty roles for young actresses and full of theatrical possibility.
