The Washington Post calls The Niceties "scintillating… gripping… destined to be staged everywhere… a vituperative battle of wills, complexly and entertainingly rendered.”

START DOWN reading at Luna Stage

My new play START DOWN will have a reading at Luna Stage Company in West Orange, NJ, on Monday, February 9th, as part of the New Moon Reading Series. Directed by the phenomenal John Michael DiResta, it should be a great chance to hear a work in progress that's topical and funny. More info available here
