Home safe & overflowing from a brilliant weekend at NWW! This was the most incredible setting to teach playwriting elements for the first time -- among old friends and new, with students who jumped into the wild worlds of dramaturgy and dramatic action without hesitation, with fellow teachers & coordinators who steered the ship with such curiosity and grace. I learned so much from all of you and our time together, and am so honored to have gotten to hear your stories.

So excited to be taking my play YOU MY LOVE AT HOME AGAIN into its next stage of development with the support of the lovely folks at Shaking the Tree Theatre and their Open Space Residency this November!
