Plays

  • The Untitled Baby Play
    When six 33 year-old-women plan a baby shower for their friend, each must confront her own reproductive system.
  • WISHBONE
    A play about trust, helplessness and resolutions set in an inpatient Eating Disorder treatment facility, Wishbone traces the relationships that develop between Zach (a 13 year old boy), Darcy (a 45 year old with husband and daughter at home) and Chava (a 17 year old Modern Orthodox Jewish woman). It provides glimpses of their healing-- from the inside and the outside-- of their longing, and of their waiting.
