Tomorrow Game was one of twelve finalists for the Emerging Playwright Prize from Leah Ryan’s Fund for Emerging Women Writers! Very exciting to be considered among so many great applicants.
My play TOMORROW GAME won the Kennedy Center’s Harold and Mimi Steinberg National Student Playwriting Award, which comes with a big cash prize, option to publish, and the invitation to attend this weeks Student Playwriting Festival–which I did!
And I’m so happy to have met so many wonderful playwrights, directors, and dramaturgs, as well as the many incredibly talented and smart guest artists that came in to work with us on our plays and talk to us about art.
I’m also thrilled to share this video of the 10-minute excerpt of my play that was featured on the Millennium Stage! Check it out (minute 46 is me)!
Could not be more excited to be directing the world premiere of Languagemachine by Lauren D’Errico and Ramin Akhavijou at the Pittsburgh Opera!

It will be presented at Pittsburgh Opera on Saturday, April 13 at 7:00 PM and Sunday, April 14 at 5:30 PM.
So excited to share that my play TOMORROW GAME is the recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Harold and Mimi Steinberg National Student Playwriting Award!
The award comes with a cash prize, membership in the Dramatists Guild and the Playwright’s Center, an offer of publication from Samuel French, attendance at the National Festival at the Kennedy Center this April, and a professional development residency this summer.
I am looking forward to joining my fellow student playwrights at the festival in April!
Had a lovely time today at the Tepper School of Business Women’s Leadership Conference!
There were two really wonderful and informative keynote speakers and I also attended a breakout session on negotiation. Really great to meet a bunch of driven and smart women leaders and eat chicken together! (also a rare/lovely chance to talk to people with non-art jobs. So different and yet so not.)
Looking forward to attending again next year!
