WRITING

You can find my work on the National New Play Exchange here.

 

I'm interested in writing American Motherhood as it is experienced by women today. I'm interested in the ugly, messy realities that don't get discussed at dinner parties, as well as the impossibly sublime journey of getting to watch a tiny person as they grow. I'm interested in the rage, the guilt, the fear and the joy - all together, all at once, all the time. I am currently working on a full-length script, "The Hunger: A Suburban Menagerie of Fantastical Proportions." Please reach out if you would like to read an excerpt or consider the play for production.

 

Previous work has focused on love, fear and death. My short plays have been produced at Barrington Stage Company, Red Bull Theater, and the Nuyorican Poet’s Café. My verse play Swansong was published by Steele Spring Press in 2017. If you would like to produce any of the below short plays, please contact me via my contact page to let me know!
