Third time’s the charm! After two postponements in 2021 and 2022, it looks like we are finally going to get to see the world premiere of Last Night in Inwood at Theater Lab at FAU in the winter of 2023. Theater Lab mounted a beautiful production of The Glass Piano in 2020 (last show before the shutdown!) and I am thrilled to be returning next year (and not just because I will get to spend a month in Florida in the dead of winter).
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!
