SWAN Day and Her Brother’s Keeper

My short play, Her Brother’s Keeper, is one of the featured plays at The WorkShop Theater’s upcoming SWAN Day event.  SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day is a relatively young international holiday, so it’s pretty cool to be a part of it!  The WorkShop will be presenting readings of seven short plays by female members of the company.  I’m proud to be included in this mighty fine group of beautifully talented writers alongside Dana Leslie Goldstein, Kari Swenson Riely, Liz Amberly, J Thalia Cunningham, Tracy Newirth, and Jennifer Fell Hayes. 

Her Brother’s Keeper is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve written.  I always describe it as my film noir play–it’s got a hard-boiled P.I., a slightly cryptic narrator, a femme fatale… and nobody’s quite what they seem or what you’d expect.  I’m lucky enough to have snagged Kari Swenson Riely (wearing multiple hats for this event), Erin Treadway, and Jed Dickson for my cast.

SWAN Day is March 30th, and the WorkShop’s show is at 3pm at 312 West 36th St in Manhattan.  Tickets are free, but reservations are a great idea and you can get one right HERE.

(Also worth mentioning: One of the monologues from Her Brother’s Keeper is featured in Smith and Kraus’s The Best Men’s Stage Monologues 2016.)

 

“Combat Ready” to be Published by Applause Theatre and Cinema Books

Very excited to announce that another one of my monologues will be published in 2019!  “Combat Ready” will be part of Applause Theatre and Cinema Books upcoming
100 MONOLOGUES FROM NEW PLAYS — WOMEN.

I wrote this piece for the wonderful actress Diana Stahl to perform at Caps Lock Theatre’s Pussyfest 3 a few years back, and it’s cool and it’s different from my usual stuff, and I’m really glad I got a chance to create it.  It’s really gratifying to see it head out into the world.

And that makes TWO of my pieces getting published this year!
