    Set in the kitchen of a Carroll Gardens brownstone in present day Brooklyn, an Italian-American family gathers on the fifth anniversary of the patriarch’s death to fulfill his last wish-- that his ashes be scattered into the East River.

    Set in the kitchen of a Carroll Gardens brownstone in present day Brooklyn, an Italian-American family gathers on the fifth anniversary of the patriarch’s death to fulfill his last wish-- that his ashes be scattered into the East River. When the rest of the family discovers that their elderly mother has hidden her late husband’s ashes, and conveniently forgotten their location, pandemonium ensues as they set about trying to discover where she hid them, and well as her reasons for doing so.

    Conceived as a comic fugue, the play is written in a contrapuntal composition technique. Beginning with a single voice, and with the addition of each family member’s upon their arrival, the action steadily builds towards a boisterous crescendo.
  • Experimenting with Katz
    Michael Katz has a problem: he's just come out of the closet, and it's not going particularly well. First, his mother shows up unexpectedly in the midst of a snowstorm to ambush him with (among other things) the daughter-in-law of her dreams. Then his best friend selfishly decides to start putting her own needs above his (and it's still snowing)! On top of everything, the one person who's...
    Michael Katz has a problem: he's just come out of the closet, and it's not going particularly well. First, his mother shows up unexpectedly in the midst of a snowstorm to ambush him with (among other things) the daughter-in-law of her dreams. Then his best friend selfishly decides to start putting her own needs above his (and it's still snowing)! On top of everything, the one person who's willing to put up with him is the only person he doesn't want anything to do with (at least that's what he keeps telling himself), leaving Michael to wonder, is this really the course of true love, or is it some social experiment gone horribly wrong? And why won't it stop snowing?!!

    ​Michael Katz has come out to his mother for a second time, the first time not having gone well and driven him to a nervous breakdown. This time, though, his mother arrives in town on a mission to make certain he gets "fixed"- doing whatever it takes. Set in Chicago in the midst an unseasonable blizzard, "Experimenting with Katz" deals with issues of coming out, and the repercussions from family and friends, and through comedy, highlights the absurdity of those whose who use their ignorance about the LGBT community as a justification for their actions, while ultimately proving harmful to the very people they love.
