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

Kennedy Center/NNPN MFA Playwrights Workshop

Just returned from an awesome week at the Kennedy Center, workshopping START DOWN through the National New Play Network MFA Playwrights Workshop, with Celise Kalke from the Alliance and director Michael Rau. Amazing what a great cast and smart collaborators will do for your revision process.
