We’re gonna destroy them!

I’ve been working with director Kelly Kitchens on my Division I football play Rushing since December — and with my incredible dramaturg Iphigenia Rising for even longer. In August, we’re teaming up again to workshop the play at The Scratch. We’re rehearsing with an incredible cast and I’m rewriting like mad. Join us on Sunday, August 25 and Tuesday, August 27 at 7:30PM for staged readings of this massive, scary play.

One giant leap for mankind? Not exactly.

Maureen Monterubio and I have been collaborating on Voyagers since November 2016 and, frankly, it's the most optimistic play I've ever worked on. It's also damn difficult to write, but in an epically thrilling / beautifully challenging way. We'll be workshopping a completely new version of the play in August/September 2019 right here in Seattle! I’m excited to dive into the intensely female space that this play now occupies — alongside some incredible actors. Oh and did I mention I wrote five original songs for this? Join us for a staged reading of the play on Friday, September 6 at 7PM at ACT Theatre.
