MORE ABOUT ME
I keep doing theatre because actors are remarkable, audiences are inquisitive, and the rest of us are crazy.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
A play about a tech tycoon who wants to save the world from climate catastrophe, global pandemics, and nuclear war, by resurrecting— through bioengineering — Sir Isaac Newton, mathematician, physicist, inventor, alchemist and, as the great man’s valet allegedly proclaimed upon his death, “vainglorious bite in the arse." I'm also cooking up a new play with the brilliant Katja Rivera.
