The kilroys List
Colony Collapse has been included on the The 2015 Kilroys List of outstanding plays by women for 2015. The play was developed for Oregon Shakespeare Festival through a commissioning and development program called Full Stage USA, funded generously by the Mellon Foundation. The play was also one of five finalists for the inaugural Shakespeare's Sister Fellowship.
The Boat at The Working Theater
The Working Theater will present a reading of The Boat on April 11, 2016 directed by Daniella Topol. The Boat follows the growing rivalry between two brothers as they struggle to keep their families afloat during the 2008 recession. Old grudges over money and favors resurface, as one bother sinks into debt & depression and the other pulls up anchor for new horizons. The play was originally commissioned by The Working Theater through funding from a NYSCA Artists grant. I will also be workshopping the script in the Spring Playground session at The Lark, beginning in January.
