My longer one act This Almost Joy was performed at Theater West, one of the longest running theaters in Los Angeles. I was happy to be able to see the production and meet up with some of my SoCal friends.
The Ensemble Theater of Chattanooga will record a podcast of Holy Hell, one of my most popular short plays. This is the poignant story of a man and woman who separately recount the accident that brought them together and the love that redeemed them both. It’s a two-hander with no set, so easy to produced. This is also why it’s a good play for a podcast.
My short, funny two-hander Spinsters was performed as “Solteronas” in Madrid, Spain in the “First Festival of Microtheatre”. This came about because the producer had seen the play being done at a theater school, Metodo Madrid. This school has used many of my short plays and monologues, translated into Spanish, in their classes, which has led to several productions. Muchas gracias, Metodo Madrid!
My full length play Want will open July 29 at the Center House Theater in Seattle, WA. The extraordinary director and racially mixed cast are currently in rehearsal, and the designers are busy with costumes, props, sets, lighting, sound, etc. I have been able to continue to polish and refine the script throughout the rehearsal process, which is the advantage of having a play produced in my home town. Very exciting.
My newest full length play Want is going to be produced in Seattle by The Shattered Glass Project in July/August of 2022. This is a group dedicated to supporting the work of female theater artists. I’m terribly excited about this first production of a new play, and eager to learn how audiences respond to it. It’s a gritty play, definitely for mature audiences.
In December, 2021 I spent a week in Boise, ID filming a series of commercials for Idaho Central Credit Union. It was the best on-camera experience I’ve ever had; great cast, great crew, a whole lot of fun. I play Granny Ivy Green. Check it out YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PPhsVNszg8
