MORE ABOUT ME:
Why do I keep doing theatre? Writing is such a mysterious process and different for everyone. My best writing occurs when I can’t escape. Snow days, blizzards, beaches….pandemics? Places where the only escape from the call of the muse is the blank page (after the ritual procrastination of social media and Netflix). These situations make me daydream. Daydreaming. Not being alone. That’s what makes me write. I am not alone when I write. And theatre? Gah. To collaborate with storytellers, members of the tribe. And then to share stories and an experience with a live audience. There is nothing like it. I am never alone when I am creating theatre. Theatre saves lives. I’ve wanted to be a part of it from the first moment that it saved me. Each play I read, each show I saw had the ability to light a spark of identification, or humor, or escape or…something that kept me going. I am part of it now. I have the opportunity to contribute to the healing of whatever ails us on any given day but particularly now. That’s why I create. That’s why I am here.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON:
I have several drafts that I'm working on. A full length play for an outdoor space that inspires me (and has never had theatre done in it...stay tuned!), a mock short play festival that takes on DEI disparities in the theatre world and beyond. And a complete overhaul of a full length play exploring, exposing and satirizing female stereotypes.
