A Week of New Plays

It was a busy week last week, with a reading of START DOWN at Centenary Stage, a reading of EM AND BEE in the Nantucket Short Play Festival, and two separate performances of VISITING, by Crashbox Theater Company at the Atlantic Alumni Farm, and by Lourdes Drama Society. So satisfying to know my work was reaching so many people.  It's amazing when, after months of solitary writing, you get to emerge from your hole and interact with directors, actors, and above all, an audience.
