I create performance works that celebrate words, movement, visuals and sound – stories rich in humor and humanity, that celebrate imagination and bursting boundaries.

I thrive on the energy of collaboration, and lead the Sparks Collaborative Ensemble – working with actors, dancers, sound and visual artists, and scientists – to create performances that shift and grow, and fire everyone’s invention.

Each performance starts with the spark of a script and becomes a living work that everybody has a hand in – and none of us could have imagined alone.

And at a time when everything is labeled, it’s vital to me that my plays embrace diverse casting. Wherever I can, I create characters open to actors of any gender and a wide range of ages. One of my short plays has been performed by two men in their 40s, by two college-age women and two non-binary actors – and each pair made it real.
