    I watched a reading of this play last night as part of Imprint Theatreworks' First Impressions Festival! This was such a beautifully tragic piece that begs to be performed on stage in full. There is poetry in the language and it feels like such a fun challenge to be able to craft a second character with another actor so you both can portray that character accurately... Cannot overstate how much I enjoyed this piece!
  • JUMP

    I can't believe I haven't commented on this. JUMP is the ten-minute play I recommend to readers, writers, and enthusiasts of well-constructed theatre to take a look at. There's a mystery that is simultaneously high stakes yet naturally paced, rooted in a very human need to grieve yet love and celebrate, and enjoy life. I <3 this play and can't recommend more highly
  • What We Scream Underwater When No One Can Hear Us

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this piece. There were some legitimate surprises throughout but they all felt very tied to character, great chemistry between the characters on page, I constantly wanted Savannah and Georgia to be together. Everyone felt alive and different, and the voices of the characters felt so real and legitimate. The writer's ability balance between keeping the language poetic but rooted in realism is incredibly admirable. Please read/produce this play!

    I got to see the recording of the Parsnip Ship adaptation of this play. It is phenomenal, with complicated characters, and I felt incredibly touched throughout. Read it, see it, produce it!
  • Things I Don't Want to Talk About: a hero(ine)'s journey

    This play is so damn good! It's equal parts fun and intense and deeply touching.
  • Time to A Phantom

    I really enjoy this piece. There's so much in this ten minute piece, and elicited a lot of emotions from me as I was reading it. Would love to see it staged myself.
  • Breaking & Entering

    This play has such amazingly complicated and realistic characters. This play is a gift to actors and filled with a very real mixture of comedy, tragedy, and prescience. Read it, produce it, WOW.
  • Love is a Blind Squirrel

    I love the absurdity in this piece, it's fun, and it works for a lot of different audiences, age groups and on so many different levels!
  • Tinker Rising
    17 Jul. 2019
    I had the pleasure of being Fight Director for a workshop reading of this piece!

    Tinker Rising blends the comedic and camp aspects of classic superhero and comics culture with a very authentic queer love story that is complicated, emotionally satisfying, and fun as hell!
  • Mahogany Brown and the Case of the Disappearing Kid
    14 Jul. 2019
    Mahogany Brown is a gut punch in the most glorious ways. The subject matter is bleak but the stylistic way it tackles said subject matter mixed with Femia's sense of humor make this a play a must-read, must-see, and must-perform.
