Hey Danielle. What are you working on?

Want to see exactly where my plays will be this year and next? Check out my calendar for a handy list! More interested in a look inside my head? Read on for details and ramblings about my works in progress.


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? More details to come!

It’s alive! (Well, almost.)

I’m in the middle of rewrites for my Frankenstein adaptation — a version of the 1818 novel that puts Mary Shelley at the narrative center. I’ll have a complete draft of the play by the end of March, so if you’re looking for a gruesome, female-centric adaptation of a classic novel to perform at your high school, college, or family-friendly theatre, reach out to me! I’d love to send you a perusal copy of the script.


They’re just friends. (Really!)

I’m at the very very beginning stages of writing something new and cute and (I hope) endlessly producible. I’m only fifteen pages in and it might be nothing. But let’s just say that these two were a huge inspiration. Once I’m ready to start talking about this project, you won’t be able to shut me up.
