Hello, world! Welcome to my new website. It took me all summer, but with a little help (thanks, Pat Gabridge, for the WordPress tutorial!) and a lot of chocolate, I now bring you detailed pages on my full-length plays, embedded videos of all the films I’ve written, lots of great production photos, and info about my coaching services. I’m planning to add a few more goodies, like play excerpts, very soon. Please feel free to comment (constructively) and let me know what you think.
Burning in New York
I’m on a bit of an adrenaline jag at the moment, and it’s probably because in a few hours I’m taking a bus to New York to start a five-day workshop of Burning with Resonance Ensemble. This fascinating company produces new plays that respond to or reimagine classic works…in repertoire with the originals. In February, Burning opens in rep with an exciting stripped-down version of Cyrano de Bergerac—and it’s going to be tight. I’m feeling thrilled, excited, giddy, and very grateful for the opportunity to get in a room with a bunch of talented people and play around with the piece. Playwright heaven!
The Housekeeper in Boston
And by the way, my new play The Housekeeper opens January 15 as part of Fresh Ink Theatre‘s upcoming season. Fresh Ink produced The Embryos in 2012, and I couldn’t be happier to collaborate once again with this talented team on their in-depth play development process. We had a public staged reading in May, and a three-day workshop is scheduled for September. This is how it’s done, y’all.
Thanks for reading. Keep in touch. There’s more to come.
