Today I Wrote: November 4, 2014

Pages from a BRAND NEW PLAY about the First Man and the Last Man and also sort of space and sea travel. This is a little monologue from The First Woman.

WOMAN
Once, a bird gave me a nut. It flew from the sky and landed at my feet with a nut in its mouth and gave it to me. And I thanked the bird and it flew away. And I have held onto that nut since I was young. I don’t know what it is for but it is from heaven. I hold onto it and hold onto it and sometimes at night by the fire I just set it very very close to my eyes so it’s the only thing I can see. I can’t even see my man or my babies. I just look at the nut. It is brown and smooth and shiny near the fire. I love it.

I'm Officially an Emerging Playwright!

Very very excited to be able to officially say that I'm going to be participating in Pipeline Theatre Company's PlayLab 2014-15 this season. Alongside the exciting talents of Salty Brine, Sarah Einspanier, Adam Fried, Jerry Leiblich, Rachel Music, and Jeremy Wine. Super cool!

I'm writing a play that's sort of about man and myth and science and space and time travel and I can't say much more about it because I literally don't know and isn't that exciting! We're official. We're hip. We're with it. We're Pipeline's PlayLab Class of 2015.

New Site

Hey internet friends (and mom),

So I've been spending some down time working on this new site, which will also let me hopefully use it as a blog. Let me know what you think, if it has a modicum of professionalism, and if you'd like to hook me up with any sweet gigs so I can stop tinkering with web design.

ALSO! A big part of building this site has been making EVERYTHING available to read/watch. Head over to my plays to give them a read or go watch my movies.

Thanks lovers.
