Playwright and more
I write new love stories for the stage. I’m inspired by my collaborators, those known and unknown, from actors to directors to designers to the audience themselves. I love rehearsal. I love watching an audience, especially a moment where one person turns to another in a moment of recognition. I’m open to new relationships and new challenges. I’d love to hear from you.
