Sheltered will be in D.C. next year with a *stellar* collection of artists, led by Adam Immerwahr, and I can hardly wait. It’s always such a gift to get a second production of any play, but this play, about refugees, American isolationism, and the great sacrifices parents will make to save their children, is very near and dear to my heart, especially at this moment in time.

Big news day around here! Certain Woman of an Age is an extremely exciting and unique new project on the horizon, with the incredible Canadian icon Margaret Trudeau – mental health advocate, water activist, mother of sitting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and wife of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. Margaret is a remarkable person whose life has been a true adventure. I am excited to embark on this journey with her, led by the indomitable Kimberly Senior.
I was very honored that the Alliance production of Sheltered won a Suzi Bass Award in Atlanta for Outstanding World Premiere. I was extremely proud of our production in Atlanta, and so happy that the incredible actors, creative team and crew were honored in this way.
Here are Park Krausen and Lee Spencer Osorio (who played Roberta and Martin in the play) accepting on hehalf of the whole team!
I’ll be heading to Florida next month to participate as a finalist in the Gulfshore Playhouse New Works Festival. This is the first time I’ll have any work represented in teh Sunshine State and I’m super jazzed about it. Also, very excited to be back in the room with LAST NIGHT IN INWOOD, and to meet the other playwrights who’s work will be presented.

Being a Finalist for something is often a double-edged sword. You’ve almost made it, you’ve stood out to someone in some way, but you didn’t quite win. Getting that notification can be both a blessing and a curse. But when it comes to being a finalist for the O’Neill, it really feels like a win, partly because of the company you get to keep. This is my second year in a row being an O’Neill finalist, and I have to say it is truly a great honor. LAST NIGHT IN INWOOD is available to read on the NPX or through my agent if anyone is interested!
