"The Third Prisoner" - a new short play commissioned by Portland Center Stage for "Play at Home"

 A big thank you to Portland Center Stage!  They commissioned me to write something for the national "Play at Home" program -- "a series of short plays commissioned specifically for this moment of unprecedented isolation to inspire joy and connection for all."  

"The Third Prisoner" is about finding connection despite isolation, humanity and empathy in the face of despair, and hope in the darkness.  It was written in this moment, for this moment.

Thank you to actors Jimmy Garcia, Eric Pargac, Andrea White, and Davis Gilmartin for their lovely reading of my little play!  You can give it a listen by clicking here.
