June 2016: PASS OVER at Southern Rep's New Play Bacchanal
PASS OVER was named a finalist for the Ruby Prize. I got to share my play with the fine people at Southern Rep and also spent a few days in New Orleans. It's an amazing city.
April 2016: PASS OVER at Cherry Lane
As part of the 2016 Mentor Project, my full-length play PASS OVER received a workshop production mentored by Katori Hall (The Mountaintop; Our Lady of Kibeho). The 2016 Mentor Project was especially poignant as it was the first time that former mentees served as mentors. I am so grateful to Katori for mentoring me through this workshop, and to Lynn Nottage (who mentored Katori in 2006 and was my Dramatists Guild Fellowship mentor) for encouraging and empowering me! We can't get anywhere without the help of those who have come before.

August 2015 : Ars Nova heads to Space on Ryder Farm
Here's to a few days away from the city for some writing, reflecting and kick-ass food! Also, Space is a working farm, so I got some one on one time with this pretty horse.

I collaborated on Pass Over with director Victor Maog and actors Frank Harts, RJ Brown, and Jeff Biehl.
July 2015 : I'm the Guest Artist at Naked Angels' 3T Summer Style
Every summer Naked Angels hosts an intensive workshop for aspiring, young playwrights, and for the second year in a row they've invited me to participate as a Guest Artist. If this year's workshop is anything last year's, I'll be blown away by the talent, goodwill and creativity of these high schoolers!
