    I got to sit in on a workshop of this piece. It is lovely, funny and insightful. She gives us an intimate look in on a family and their all-too-relatable intergenerational tensions. I look forward to seeing more from this playwright.

    This is laugh-out-loud-by-yourself (or in a class) funny. If you want a fun ten-minute for a festival or a great, energetic short for a class, you have some to the right play. So awesome.

    I could not put this down. This reads like a thriller or mystery and you will find yourself trying to figure it out right along with the protagonist. I highly recommend checking out this play.
  • SOUP: A play for videoconference

    The loving attention to detail in this play is really just wonderful. This is a piece of the moment, in the moment (set right at the beginning of the pandemic), yet will persist in relevance in how it explores ways we try to connect to our partners. Read and enjoy.
  • Cliffhanger

    This is a play that is nuanced in its dark humor and experimental in how it approaches language (including who gets to speak which lines). It was such a joy to watch the preview of it and I hope it gets produced many more times. A wonderful piece.
  • Saving Pete McDougal (A Phillie McDougal Play)

    A poignant and lovely monologue that shows the complexities of our family relationships even, and especially, in death.
  • Quentin Tarantino's G-Rated Crime Movie (a 1 minute companion piece to Quentin Tarantino’s PG-13 Crime Movie)

    LOL! I didn't know what to expect, and the surprise of the play so perfectly matching the title is awesome.

    This was so fun and the details about "The Creature" (yes, they do all move in slow-motion), are great.
  • A Wicked Slice

    Dark humor is my absolute favorite, so I really enjoyed this surprising short.
  • Mid-Day Masturbation

    If only this wasn't so relevant and honest, but sadly (not for the playwright, for us), it is.
