Beyond thrilled to share that my play TOMORROW GAME will be featured by Virginia’s Barter Theatre in an online reading as part of their Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights! Tomorrow Game is one of four new plays being supported by Barter in the festival, which is entirely free online and will have events spanning Tuesday, Jan. 26-Saturday, February 6.
TOMORROW GAME is directed by Associate Artistic Director Nicholas Piper and stars Barter resident actors Kim Morgan Dean and Paris Bradstreet.
The readings are recorded and lightly edited for a smoother zoom experience, and also received 6 hours of workshop prior to the recording! So, if you’re familiar with TOMORROW GAME you may still want to drop by for the very latest draft! Registration for the festival is here. The video will drop at noon on Thursday, January 28 and audiences will have all day to watch and the opportunity to tune in at 8:00 PM for a live discussion of the play, with feedback from a panel.
I can’t wait to see you there!
Previous support for the development of TOMORROW GAME includes the Edward Albee Foundation and the Kennedy Center. TOMORROW GAME was a recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Harold and Mimi Steinberg National Student Playwriting Award, and was a finalist for the Princess Grace Award.
Very happy to be included in this year’s digital version of In Their Own Voices, an event at Pittsburgh’s City Theatre where they showcase local talent by having playwrights read an excerpt from their own plays!
Here is me reading a bit of Act I of my play EVERYBODY’S DEAD: A COMEDY, with an introduction by Pittsburgh’s Co-Dramatists Guild Rep Mora Harris. EVERYBODY’S DEAD is part of the Bunker Cycle!
Was delighted to attend the Mid-America Theater Conference to develop my short play HOW TO BE A PERSON with dramaturg Matt Fotis and director Tyrrell Woolbert, starring Andre Garner and Julia Moriarty.
I learned a ton about the play and next steps for its development, and had a blast visiting my old stomping ground of Chicago!
Had the most glorious and productive weekend in Louisville workshopping my play EVERYBODY’S DEAD: A COMEDY at Actors Theatre. Directed by the brilliant Nora Gair, with dramaturgy & curation/casting by the divine Joshua Brown, I learned a ton about the play, added several scenes, and can’t wait for my next opportunity to share it!
Very excited to share that my graduate thesis play, How to Live Forever, will have a workshop production at City Theatre’s Hamburg Studio Theatre next week! The play is directed by the fantastic senior CMU director Nora Gair.
The event is free and open to the public, and tickets are first-come first-serve on the day of the performance. See the show:
