FIRST IN-PERSON PLAY

June 6, 2021

Today I began in-person rehearsals for Permafrost Theater Collective's The High Priestess. This is my first in-person rehearsal process since the onset of the pandemic, and I can't wait to stage this show with the rest of the performers and creative team. 

PLAYWRIGHTS' RETREAT

May 23, 2021

Workshopped my play Xenia with the Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre. Had the opportunity to write under the mentorship of Don Hannah, Lara Lewis, and Pamela Halstead, as well as an incredible cohort of 10 other playwrights. I was honored to hear my script read aloud by a joyously talented cast of 7.

PLAYWRITING FELLOW, CENTRAL SQUARE THEATER

August 11, 2021

Staged reading of How Do We Heal? an investigative theater piece that explores youth mental health. 

"Why do we only address mental health when there's a crisis?" "Why do adults often seem dismissive or unprepared for youth mental health challenges?" "How has the Pandemic affected youth mental health?" Development will continue through June, 2022.

 

REVIEWS

"This is particularly true of Jill, brought to life spectacularly by Iris Rhian who displayed a skillful compassion and touching vulnerability as Claudia’s  youngest daughter. Jill continually gets caught in the middle of her mother and her whirlwind of a sister, clearly being slightly manipulated by both, but unable to deny the basic logic of either person."
