"The Incident Report" goes to New York City!

If you're in New York City this summer, I hope you'll check out "The Incident Report" at the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival. I'm pleased to be working with director Darin Anthony (who also directed my play "Heads" at the Blank Theater and "Leonard's Voice" in Moving Arts' Car Plays) and some of my favorite actors -- Michael Shutt, Peter James Smith and Stephanie Erb. We're taking our Los Angeles production to the Big Apple, and looking forward to it! 

Six nights, forty plays, 180 years of publishing.  Be a part of history!  Come see new and exciting work from some of the freshest playwrights in the country!  From over 880 initial submissions, 40 plays were selected to perform in the festival, from which six will be chosen for representation and published in a collection by Samuel French, Inc.  Join us for some exciting summer nights of ground breaking theatre!

A Lovely Gift from Lee

As I leave Los Angeles and head back east for a year-long writing residency, my teacher, mentor and friend Lee Wochner gave me some lovely words, in lieu of flowers.  You can see the article here in the LA Stage Blog.

A big thank you to Lee, who has helped me so much through the years -- opening doors and encouraging me through them.  His "Words That Speak" playwriting workshop is one of the things I'll miss most about Los Angeles.  What am I going to do with my Saturday mornings without that rigorous criticism, delightful theater conversation and donuts???
