Hey, I'm Olivia! I’m a New York-born, Boston-based actor-playwright, and a graduate of the Boston University School of Theatre (BFA, Theatre Arts).

My original work has been produced by Brunch Theatre and the Boston Center for American Performance (BTM XIX), and developed with Nora's Playhouse and the Boston University School of Theatre. New works-based company Acadiana Repertory Theatre is producing my play Final Flight in Lafayette, LA this June!

When I'm not doing this stuff, I make art with my hands, fall in love with strangers on public transportation, and add to the ever-growing list of powerhouse women I want to create with.

    When an asteroid long ago predicted to cause a global mass-extinction suddenly appears in the sky, capricious seventeen year-old Gabbi Raleigh is forced to confront the stark realization of her own mortality. The sentiment is shared by Gabbi’s estranged aunt Margot, who returns unexpectedly after nine years without contact, determined to be reconciled with her dying younger sister before the end of days. The Raleighs are thrust into the moral dilemma of placing forgiveness before dignity, and wildly attempt to make sense of both global and familial chaos. Meanwhile, a therapist haunted by her troubled past receives a visit from a personal hero in a turn of events that just may set both their souls at rest. All have to wonder:
    Is fulfillment attainable? And if so, can one find it in just forty-eight hours?
  • The Way Things Work
    A young woman experiences a windfall of bad luck on her wedding day that forces her to question everything. Enlisting help from a nervous young man working the wedding, she plans her escape into freedom, and the great unknown.
  • The Trip Through Livingston
    Three self-identified “woke” liberal millennials are forced to confront their fears when their GPS steers them through the only red town in the county.
