  • Human Resources
    21 Aug. 2021
    I had the great pleasure of dramaturging HUMAN RESOURCES for the 2021 Great Plains Theatre Conference. This smart, engaging, opposites-attract play showcases a relationship not often glamorized onstage - coworkers whose proximity breeds care. And, in doing so during this time of social isolation, the play almost makes one nostalgic for the office. The writing is spare, specific, and very funny.
  • Prima Donna
    5 May. 2021
    Theatrical and thought-provoking, Prima Donna is a new, original, imaginative story built on the foundation of an older tale. The play offers rich opportunities for actors and theater artists to play, and its fresh and energetic writing is sure to engage audiences.
  • Shadow of the Son
    3 Feb. 2021
    A fresh, theatrical, and utterly compelling play built from ancient Greek myths. The nonlinear structure invites audiences to engage more deeply in the storytelling.
  • Deadline 2037
    14 Aug. 2020
    I am delighted to recommend this play after having had the pleasure of attending a zoom reading of this play when it was part of Hollins Playwright’s Lab 2020 Playwrights Festival. Deadline 2037 is an engaging play with a scarily realistic premise. The play has great parts for older actors, and, throughout the play, the ground keeps shifting for both the characters and the audience in really satisfying ways.
  • My Shame is Your Demon
    14 Aug. 2020
    I am delighted to recommend this play after having had the pleasure of attending a zoom reading of this play when it was part of Hollins Playwright’s Lab 2020 Playwrights Festival. My Shame is Your Demon is a taut and well-balanced two-hander. By teasing apart the narratives that the characters have created for themselves, the play compellingly explores culpability, memory, and family.
