Nexus in Iowa City

Nexus is coming to Iowa City! The play is being produced by Dreamwell Theatre and is directed by the very talented (and kind) Bries Vannon. The production runs from February 9 to 17 and I couldn't be more excited. I've been collaborating with the team from afar and the cast is working from a fresh set of rewrites, but mostly I've given this play space to live in the world. If you're in Iowa City in February, join us! Tickets can be purchased at dreamwell.com.


Dust in San Diego

I'm proud to announce that Dust is the recipient of the 2018 Finish Line Commission. I'll be in San Diego from February 11 to 17 workshopping the play at Cygnet Theatre. Rob Lutfy, Cygnet Theatre's Associate Artistic Director, will be directing the workshop and I'm looking forward to unpacking the play together. (Rob and I met when we both lived in Washington, DC and I'm very happy that we get to collaborate on this.) If you're in California and are interested in seeing an in progress reading of the show, join us on Friday, January 16 at 8PM. I'd love to see you there!

Dust on Mercer Island, WA

My play Dust will be workshopped with the high school students at Youth Theatre Northwest on Mercer Island, WA this Spring. I wrote this play for twenty-two teenage actors and I'm thrilled to be partnering with this talented cast of high school students. If you're in Washington this Spring, be sure to check out the workshop production on May 11 & 12 at 9:30PM.


The Three-Oh Project

Sara Keats and I are co-creating a devised theatre piece about women turning 30. If you're a woman between 27 and 29 years old and are interested in contributing a voice memo to our play, please email me for more information. We are especially looking for stories from women of color and LGBTQ women. 

You can almost see my grey hair in this photo. Also, sometimes I take pictures of myself writing in unusual places.

Greetings from Seattle!

I've been traveling for work a lot more lately and sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of me. I'm currently in Seattle, but my heart is in Iowa City with the cast of Nexus
